Originally chartered in 1940 as the New Haven Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union, Connex Credit Union is currently Connecticut’s fifth largest credit union, with more than 51,700 members. The name was changed to Southern New England Financial Credit Union as more SEGs became affiliated with the Credit Union. In 2002, the Credit Union charter was converted to a community base state charter, allowing the field of membership to include all residents of Hartford, Middlesex, and New Haven Counties. The charter change also led to a new name, Connex; pronounced "connects," this bit of word whimsy was chosen to reflect the expanded field of membership – CONNECTicut residentS.
