EAST HARTFORD, CT (September 24, 2019) — American Eagle Financial Credit Union, Connecticut’s largest community-focused credit union, today announced the opening of a branch office in North Haven at 84 Washington Avenue on Monday, Sept. 30.

American Eagle’s new state-of-the-art, 1,500-square-feet facility will offer a complete line of consumer banking products and business deposit accounts, as well as extended banking hours via video banking ATMs, also known as VTMs.

“For nearly 85 years, American Eagle has served as a community-based financial institution offering our members great rates on banking products and serving our towns as an engaged and active community partner.  We are very excited to bring our services both as a stable financial institution and responsible neighbor to the town of North Haven and New Haven County,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Dean Marchessault.

American Eagles new North Haven branch office is designed in a modern, member-friendly, open floor setting, along with drive-up ATMs.  The ATMs also serve as video banking ATMs, called VTMs, which offer customers a new way of banking with extended hours.  The VTMs allow customers to speak with a live teller right from their vehicles, conveniently completing transactions without stepping inside the branch.  The VTMs offer extended hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
