Welcome to MSCU
Mutual Security Credit Union has been serving members and communities across Western Connecticut since 1954. At MSCU, supporting our community is one of our top priorities. Whether with financial services, education, advice, or at a neighborhood event, we strive to earn your trust and help you achieve success every day.
Since our founding in 1954, MSCU has stood out among credit unions in Connecticut for walking the walk. Our commitment to our members has always gone beyond providing convenient banking solutions, competitive rates, and sound financial advice.
We take great pride in our broader community and the legacy we’ve built, creating meaningful impact both inside and outside MSCU’s doors.
Today we serve more than 28,000 members across five branch locations in Western Connecticut. We are 100% member-owned, and all profits are returned to our membership, local businesses, and organizations through lower loan rates, higher deposit rates, better services, and community support.
We’re not only your trusted financial services partner; we’re your trusted and friendly neighbor, too.
We are builders of financial well-being within the communities we serve.
We believe community is all about a shared contribution and commitment to each other for a successful outcome both inside and outside our walls.
We believe that integrity is fundamental to the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” with uncompromising honesty and accountability.
We believe that empowered employees provide exceptional service, promote professional growth, and allow our members to make sound financial decisions.
We believe when we respect each other’s unique talents and diversity, it allows us to help each other develop, grow, and prosper.
We believe commitment promotes mutual support, trust, dedication, and loyalty.
Who We Serve
We welcome anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Fairfield, Litchfield, or New Haven counties in Connecticut.
Once you’re a member, you can take us wherever you go—even if you change jobs, relocate, or retire. And your family members are always welcome to join, so they can enjoy the same benefits you do!
What Members Are Saying
I have been a member for 20 years and get better service here than I do at the banks! Great people to work with – especially when you hit hard times!
We have been with MSCU [for] over 40 years. We moved to Maryland 10 years ago and still love having MSCU for all our banking needs.
