EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – American Eagle FCU, Connecticut’s second-largest credit union, picked up a new branch with this week’s merger of Hartford Postal Employees CU, an ailing one-time $13-million credit union.

The 55-year-old postal credit union is based in nearby Wethersfield and has reported losses for four straight years and a net worth of less than 2% at mid-year.

The $1.4-billion American Eagle FCU is a former Pratt & Whitney employees’ credit union.
