Post Office CU of Maryland Celebrates 75

Register now

The oldest credit union in Maryland is marking an anniversary with a new logo and brand.

Seventy-five years ago Post Office Credit Union of Maryland was born when nearly 25 workers at the old Post Office of Baltimore gathered on a Wednesday afternoon to form the credit union, with seven of those present elected to the first board. But the credit union was never incorporated, and it was liquidated and reformed in 1929 under Maryland law as the Baltimore Post Office Employees' Credit Union. In 1969 membership was expanded to all post offices in Maryland, and in 1970 changed its name from Baltimore Post Office Employees' Credit Union, Inc. to the Post Office Credit Union of Maryland, Inc. In 2000, it expanded again to include immediate family members of the FOM. The CU currently serves 5,700 members.
