Being a member of a credit union is beneficial for many reasons. Here are a few facts that make SeaComm stand out even more!
- SeaComm is a financial cooperative, also known as a credit union. While a traditional bank has “customers,” SeaComm has members. Each member owns a share in the credit union, and holds value within the financial institution. As a non-profit institution, SeaComm is not in the business of making money from fees and interest! As a credit union, SeaComm works to empower the financial lives of its membership and strengthen our communities.
- SeaComm initially operated from a tool box. Yes, you read that correctly. In 1963, ten visionary employees of Chevrolet Aluminum Foundry of GM Corporation in Massena each put $5 in a toolbox, to obtain a share in a newly formed organization that we know today as SeaComm Federal Credit Union.
- SeaComm is committed to the credit union philosophy, “People Helping People.” These acts of kindness are one of the main focuses of SeaComm, and is displayed throughout the Pay-it-Forward Program and countless other community initiatives and financial contributions.

- SeaComm currently serves over 46,000 members – and continues to grow! Last year SeaComm announced plans to expand from Northern New York into Vermont! Membership is now open to persons who live, work, (or regularly conduct business in), worship or attend school in and business and other legal entities located in St. Lawrence, Franklin, Clinton Essex Counties, New York and Grand Isle, Chittenden and Franklin Counties, Vermont.
