why choose bellwether?
Here at Bellwether Community Credit Union, our members enjoy a full range of competitive financial services. Each day we renew our mission to deliver outstanding value by conveniently providing a full range of competitive financial services in an environment of extraordinary service in our branches, online, and via all the digital tools you've come to expect from the big banks... except from your local credit union.
Unlike the big banks, a credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by YOU, the members of the credit union. We offer most of the same products and services that other financial institutions do, but we do not answer to stockholders who are seeking a profit, a profit that is usually paid for by accounthoulders in the form of fees and charges. Since a credit union is owned by its members, value is returned in the form of lower rates on loans, higher dividends on savings, or invested into additional products to meet the changing needs of its membership. Our Board of Directors is made up of volunteers who oversee the direction of the credit union and make certain that we continue to grow and develop in a way that serves our members best and remains true to our mission.
Bellwether was established in 1921 as the Telephone Workers Credit Union of New Hampshire and originally only served employees of the Bell Telephone System. Now almost 100 years later, we have not only changed our name, but we've expanded our membership to anyone living or working in New Hampshire, employees in the communication industry, and relatives of current members. We strive to provide our members with the highest value in our products and service offerings, while maintaining a local, personal touch in our interactions.
On behalf of everyone here at Bellwether Community Credit Union, we consider it a privilege to be part of our local New Hampshire communities and to serve your financial needs with a smile. Welcome aboard...
