Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union announced June 1 that it received approval from the National Credit Union Administration for a community charter expansion.

As the above graphic illustrates, this allows the credit union to offer its services beyond Mercer County to include six surrounding counties in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union now offers membership to persons who live, work, worship, or go to school in Mercer County, plus the surrounding counties of Crawford, Lawrence and Venango counties, as well as Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties in Ohio.

“We’re very excited to welcome members from this expanded community and share the benefits of credit union membership,” says CEO Sandi Carangi. “Our credit union will go from serving the Mercer County community of over 100,000 residents, to seven counties with more than 800,000 people.”

The expansion comes at a time when the credit union is embarking on a technology upgrade that will provide its members with enhanced services. Among them are account opening, loan processing, and online and mobile banking, according to Carangi. The enhancements are being made to improve efficiencies and provide members with the latest financial services technology, she says.
