Maine State Credit Union (Augusta, ME) and Midcoast Federal Credit Union (Freeport, ME) have announced plans to merge subject to regulatory and member approval. Combined, the entity will steward over $725 million in member assets and serve more than 46,000 members from eight locations in Central and Mid Coast Maine. The organizations expect to finalize the partnership in 2021.
The Boards of Directors of both Credit Unions view this as a partnership of strength. While market forces may have brought us to the table, months of analysis have revealed many synergies that will enhance our ability to serve our combined membership. We begin as two independently strong, well-capitalized institutions that share common values and are propelled by talented, highly engaged employees.

Consumers would enjoy that “float” period when they would still have use of the funds in their account, even though the funds were obligated to the recipient of the check. That float period has been shortening for years with efficiencies in the check processing industry and now another major erosion of float is upon us with Same Day ACH.
