Health Employees Federal Credit Union (HEFCU) members approved a proposed merger with SEFCU, one of the largest credit unions in upstate New York. The merger is legally effective as of June 1, 2018.

With more than 3,500 members, HEFCU serves the employees (and family members) of various hospitals and medical facilities in the region with three branch locations in Albany Med, St. Peter’s Hospital, and Ellis Hospital, all of which will become SEFCU branches post- merger.

In addition to full service retail and commercial banking products and services, SEFCU is committed to supporting the community through the donation of time and talent of its staff and members, as well as monetary contributions to help people and make an impact in the communities it serves.
