Our Story

Wellness Federal Credit Union has been successfully serving thousands of members in the healthcare field for over 55 years.

Established in June 1955, Hartford Hospital Employees Credit Union, renamed Hartford Healthcare Federal Credit Union, began during a time of optimism and growth in the wake of the world conflict. As part of that growth, the rapidly growing credit union movement gave hard-working people an opportunity to control their financial lives and develop safeguards for their future.

Since then, the guiding principles of the credit union movement have been at the very heart of the credit union and our commitment to providing our members with superior service delivered with promptness, courtesy, and integrity.

In 2018, we made a new commitment to our members and that commitment has brought us to our name change from Hartford Healthcare Federal Credit Union to Wellness Federal Credit Union. This name change allows us to focus on the financial wellness of our members and to bring new member access, tools, and support that fits into your daily lives.

Like all credit unions, Wellness Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution. All members own “shares” of the credit union. By pooling their money, they are able to offer loans and other services of the credit union at very competitive rates. And, since we are not for profit, any profits from interest or investments are given back to our members in the form of dividends. Deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, IRAs and Roth IRAs are additionally insured up to $250,000.

Wellness Federal Credit Union serves the primary financial needs of members and their families in the healthcare arena and the community. The credit union will provide financial products and services in a professional, friendly, and convenient atmosphere through innovation, vision, technology, education, and cost-effective products. The credit union will continue to serve as a primary financial resource.

Personal Responsibility
Each individual on the Board, Committees, and staff are responsible for achieving personal goals, as well as giving 100 percent effort in helping achieve corporate or team goals.

By “Helping People Help Themselves” we further the potential for individual and shared success. We also have a responsibility to be good citizens in the communities where we live and work.

Financial Freedom
We are proud advocates of financial freedom. Human economic advancement and security are clearly proven to be best achieved in a free market economy.

Partnership
Wellness Federal Credit Union is a partner in the financial well being of its members. This is our most prized possession. We always try to do what is in the long-term best interest of our members, in a manner which increases trust and confidence. The success of Wellness Federal Credit Union will reward all who have contributed to its success.

We’re adapting our 63-year-old Credit Union to meet the needs of our members. Our vision is to keep our credit union up to date with the latest technology, security, and accessibility our members and society demands. We plan on being here for another 63 years!
