Danbury Municipal FCU members approve merger with Sikorsky Financial CU
DANBURY, Conn. - Members of Danbury Municipal FCU have overwhelmingly approved a merger with Sikorsky Financial Credit Union, the largest state-chartered credit union in Connecticut. At the election meeting held March 18, 96% of the votes cast by DMFCU members were in favor of the merger. The merger has already been approved by NCUA and is awaiting final review and approval by the Connecticut Office of the Banking Commissioner. The merger is the first for Sikorsky since it became the first federal credit union in Connecticut to convert to a state charter last year and was granted a community field-of-membership. Its field-of-membership includes the three contiguous counties of Fairfield, New Haven or Hartford counties, with the exception of the FOMs of 10 area CUs. Danbury Municipal FCU is located in Fairfield County.
