Important Information about the Target Security Breach Target has notified the public of a credit and debit card data breach across the United States. The breach occurred between November 27, 2013 and December 15, 2013 for purchases made inside Target stores. If you shopped Target online, you will not be affected. If you used your Nutmeg credit or debit card between the dates listed, you may have been affected. Please monitor your account closely. If you see any unusual or unauthorized activity on our account, notify us immediately. Contact us at 1.800.526.6933 or 860.513.5000. The credit union has multiple systems in place to monitor fraudulent activity, but we encourage you to closely monitor your accounts if you shopped at Target during these dates. We also have an Identity Theft Recovery Program in place for members in the event that identity theft occurs. Members who are protected by this program receive a personal Recovery Advocate. The Recovery Advocate assigned to your case will:
  • provide a customized recovery plan within 72 hours
  • alert the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion)
  • work with all necessary government and law enforcement agencies
  • complete all forms and follow-up on your behalf
If you are not enrolled or are not sure if you are enrolled in this program, please contact us to find out more information. This program covers all your bank accounts and credit cards, not just Nutmeg accounts. This service has helped many members who have been the victim of identity theft recover their identities and repair the damages done. We encourage you to take advantage of this added protection.

Our School Banking & Education Program Can Help Your Kids With nearly 20% of Americans living beyond their means, at Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union, we believe that learning the fundamentals of financial responsibility is the most important step in building future wealth and avoiding financial pitfalls. It has been shown that teaching financial education to students at a young age generates greater money-management skills that carry well into adulthood. To make sure that students are receiving the financial educated they need, we have developed a School Banking Program focused on saving, budgeting and the basics of borrowing. We have also have programs designed to teach students about:
  • Checking Accounts (Check writing, balancing, debit cards)
  • Setting Priorities – Needs versus wants
  • Debit versus Credit
  • Understanding Credit
  • Online Banking basics
  • Identity Theft & Protection
The School Banking Program curriculum is specifically designed to teach students the in’s and out’s of money - starting from where money comes from to planning for retirement. Each curriculum is designed for a specific age group and ability. This allows us to ensure that the students are getting the most out of the program. For more information about our School Banking Program, contact Jackie Miller at 860.513.5034 or send an email by clicking here.
