HAMPTON -- Personalized service and a friendly home town atmosphere are just two of the reasons the Seacoast Credit Union continues to flourish. Now with over 4,000 members, the non-profit organization, owned by its members, offers a large number of services as a small institution.
At each of its three locations, services available to Seacoast Credit Union customers include consumer loans, mortgages, savings accounts, children's savings, Christmas clubs, payroll deductions and Coastline 24-hour account access. On-line banking and the credit union's new Web page for transactions are just two of the recent additions to the wide range of products provided customers. Now, loans may be applied for on-line, and as part of Direct Lending, customers will be able to apply for automobile loans right at the dealership.
A staff of twelve employees service the needs of customers at three locations. The most recently opened branch at Winnacunnet High School has been operating very successfully for 1-1/2 years, and in addition to teachers and staff, provides valuable experience to students who make use of its services, according to Joanne Nadeau, President and CEO of Seacoast Credit Union.
For more information about the Seacoast Credit Union, call or visit the Seabrook Branch, 68 Lafayette Road, Seabrook, 474-9090, or in Hampton at 887 Lafayette Road, 926-5653.
