Members of VSECU (Vermont State Employees Credit Union) are now able to do their banking in Waterbury thanks to a “credit union on wheels” that rolled into town on Sept. 14. The new mobile branch office opened its doors for business at 59 Railroad St., near the corner of Railroad Street and Park Row.
When the remnants of Hurricane Irene brought heavy rains and flooding to Waterbury, many homes and businesses were hard hit, including the VSECU branch located in the Vermont State Office Complex.
The 40-foot recreational vehicle is modified and equipped to be a full-service credit union branch. It will serve the Waterbury region until VSECU opens its new branch office at 27 S. Main St. later in the year.
Members in the Waterbury area will be able to open new accounts, conduct teller transactions, apply for loans, make ATM cash withdrawals during business hours and more. Credit union on wheels office hours are 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
