Dutch Point Credit Union's History & Vision




Dutch Point Credit Union was founded in 1960 by a group of Hartford Electric Light Company (HELCO) employees. Our name was derived from the Hartford, CT Dutch Point Power Plant. In October of that year, we began operations out of the HELCO office on Pearl Street, later transferring to Sheldon Street in Hartford.

We began as a single-sponsor credit union to serve Eversource Energy (formerly Northeast Utilities) employees and family members, and all of its subsidiaries. Eventually, our membership included additional Select Employer Groups, which grew to more than 200 companies.

With our credit union’s rapid growth, it was necessary to look for a new location; and, in 1976, the credit union built its first main office and branch at 195 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield. Additional locations in Berlin, Newington, Niantic, West Hartford, Bloomfield and Middletown joined the credit union's branch network over the coming years.

Eight credit unions have merged into Dutch Point Credit Union during our tenure, allowing those members to continue to enjoy credit union financial services and benefits.

In 2004, the Connecticut State Banking Department granted Dutch Point a community charter, allowing us to serve consumers in the counties of Hartford, Middlesex, New Haven and New London.

Today, we are a Connecticut credit union with more than 23,000 members and assets of over $450 million. We are proud of the road we've traveled, and we look forward to spending our future with you.

Dutch Point Credit Union is first and foremost a wonderful friend. The Representatives, the Team with whom I interact, are top notch in their skill and abilities, assisting me and my family in whatever is needed on any given visit. Whether it is a loan, online banking, mortgage advice and more, these team members glow with professionalism, respect, and kindness. The employees are worth their weight in gold.......and then some. As a family, or as an individual, I’d want them on my side. Thank you all so very much for always being there, and, for always saying..............YES WE CAN.
