Meridian Trust Announces Merger

with Nebraska-based Western Heritage Federal Credit Union

A strong commitment to both our members and communities

Members of Western Heritage Federal Credit Union – with branches located in both Alliance and Scottsbluff, Nebraska – voted overwhelmingly in favor of a merger with Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union. The two credit unions will be merged under the Meridian Trust name effective January 1st, 2022.

The official merger of Meridian Trust and Western Heritage federal credit unions will join two financial institutions that share a strong commitment to their membership and the communities they serve. The partnership will offer expanded services to Western Heritage FCU members and additional branch and ATM access to Meridian Trust FCU members. Members and employees of both organizations will benefit from the economies of scale that a larger organization brings.

Since both credit unions currently have a branch in Scottsbluff near each other, we will combine operations inside of the Western Heritage location. The branch in Alliance, Nebraska will remain at its current location.

Meridian Trust welcomes all the members and employees of Western Heritage.

“Each organization has a strong passion for serving their existing and potential membership, providing local as well as world-class digital services.”

Kim Withers, Meridian Trust CEO
