    PORTSMOUTH, NH – (April 2, 2018) – State dignitaries and Service Credit Union (SCU) members praised the credit union for its exemplary service and community involvement during Service Credit Union’s 61st Annual Meeting held recently at its Corporate Offices on Lafayette Road.

    New Hampshire Governor Christopher Sununu commended the credit union for its community-driven vision. “Every time there’s an issue, you pick up the phone and ask how can you help?” Sununu said. “Service Credit Union has an incredible team here. You are part of an organization which does it right.”

    Sununu added that other organizations “should take a page out of your book,” because SCU treats every member as an individual. “Your group is a great example, leading by example,” he said.

    New Hampshire Banking Commissioner Gerald Little said, “Service Credit Union is a wonderful organization which doesn’t wait to be called on to help.”

    Frustrated with another financial institution, SCU Business Member Elizabeth Webster, owner of Dodge’s Agway Farm and Garden, thought all banking institutions were the same until she took out an RV loan from SCU. “The Hampton Branch took care of it within an hour,” she said. “I heard back from the Business Banking division within a day.”

    Webster explained that she now can focus on growing her business since she has a great business partner in Service Credit Union. “I feel so fortunate and grateful to have found Service Credit Union,” she said.

    Senior Master Sergeant Shane Hutchins praised the SCU Government Shutdown Program citing that during the 14-day shutdown a few years ago SCU was going to pay their military members. “It was one less thing for the military to worry about,” he said. “Service Credit Union is a step above other institutions.”

    Service Credit Union reported that loans, shares and assets are at exceptional levels and these financial results show 2017 was a very successful year to demonstrate the credit union’s overall financial strength.
