The History of CFPCU
On July 22, 1930, employees of the Orlando Post Office got their own financial institution. On that date, Orlando Postal Service Credit Union (OPSCU) was granted its certificate of organization and the 44 original members were starting an organization: “…for the benefit of the employees who can invest money and at the same time borrow money at a reasonable rate of interest.” The Credit Union was led by Harold F. Anderson, one of the founding members and also the Credit Union’s first President.
Central Florida Postal Credit Union, the name it adopted in 1997 to better describe the area the organization serves, added postal customers to its member base in 2007. With branch locations in downtown Orlando, Tradeport, Melbourne, Winter Garden, Lakeland and Lake Mary, Central Florida indeed has its own postal credit union. Serving both post office employees and post office customers.
The mission of CFPCU is: “To deliver dreams by building a caring, lifelong, financial partnership with our members” and with an 80-year history combined with a bright future, the delivery of dreams continues. The first President, Harold F. Anderson, said in an interview on the opening date in 1930: “This organization has a fine start and should be a great help to the employees of the local post office.” Eighty years later, CFPCU continues to build upon the “fine start” and looks forward to serving its members for the next 80 years…
