Meridian Trust Announces Proposed Merger

with Western Heritage Federal Credit Union

A strong commitment to both our members and communities

Meridian Trust has just announced a proposed merger with Nebraska-based Western Heritage Federal Credit Union, with branches in Alliance and Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The two credit unions would be merged under the Meridian Trust name.

The proposed merger of Meridian Trust and Western Heritage federal credit unions will join two 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. No layoffs will result from the merger which is expected to be completed by early 2022. This is subject to NCUA approval.

Since both credit unions currently have a branch in Scottsbluff less than a half mile apart from each other, the plan is to combine operations inside of the Western Heritage location. The branch in Alliance, Nebraska will remain at its current location.

More information on this proposed merger will be shared over the coming months.

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