Affinity Federal Credit Union Merges with NEA Federal Credit Union


Affinity Federal Credit Union (Affinity) announces its merger with NEA Federal Credit Union establishing one of the largest, continually evolving credit unions in the northeast. Effective Sept. 1, 2017, the merger will create new opportunities to deliver expanded products, services and cutting-edge technology to more than 140,000 members across New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. The merged entities will operate under the Affinity brand.

Affinity is committed to providing its members and those of the NEA family with the highest level of service and personal attention, with profits being reinvested to serve membership in the form of a wide range of quality products, great rates and low fees.

Affinity is the largest credit union headquartered in the state of New Jersey, and its merger with NEA has grown its brick-and-mortar footprint from 16 to more than 20 branches. Offering locations in complementary regional markets helps serve its members from thousands of businesses and organizations and further positions Affinity for future growth.

"Affinity and NEA historically share similar cultures and values, making this merger a beneficial and seamless transition for current and future members," said John T. Fenton, President and CEO of Affinity Federal Credit Union. "Expanding our footprint to include New York and Connecticut communities will allow us to continue building financial strength to more fully serve individuals and businesses in these regions."
