Proud History

We delivered financial security to those who delivered the mail.

There’s A Good Reason Why
There’s A Postmark in Our Logo

Buckeye State Credit Union was formed in 1933, during the great depression, as the Akron Postal Employees Credit Union in order to serve postal workers during the worst economic period in United States history.  In 1964, the credit union expanded its field of membership to federal employees working out of Summit and Medina counties, thus we were re-branded as Akron Postal and Federal Employee Credit Union. As we continued to grow, the credit union, again, transitioned in 1971 and re-branded into Ohio Federal Employees Credit Union. After a series of mergers, the credit union changed its name one more time in 1975 to Buckeye State Credit Union, which is the proud name we carry today.

Buckeye’s tradition has been to serve postal workers, as is signified by our postage stamp logo, but has grown to be more inclusive and now serves much of Northeast Ohio, including those who reside, work, go to school, worship, or volunteer in Lake, Cuyahoga, Summit, and Stark counties. Despite several mergers over the years all across the state of Ohio, Buckeye State Credit Union has maintained its roots in the Northeast Ohio area where it has been a staple in the community for over 85 years.
