Did you know credit unions have been around since the mid-1800s? That's a long history of people helping people, which is the shared credit union philosophy. While Blue Eagle Credit Union hasn't been around quite that long, we have been serving the greater Roanoke and Lynchburg areas since 1948.
A group of USPS employees chartered our credit union to give Postal employees and their families a place do business with affordable rates, and with people they knew and trusted. For more than 60 years, we were a single-sponsor credit union, serving only the USPS employees and their families throughout southwest VA.
In 2013, our credit union became a state chartered community credit union, and we changed our name from Roanoke Postal Employees' Federal Credit Union to Blue Eagle Credit Union.
Why Blue Eagle Credit Union you ask? The eagle displays strength and a sense of reaching new heights. Eagles have keen vision and soar like no other, even rising above storm clouds. The color blue depicts strength, loyalty, stability, and trust-worthiness. Both the eagle and the color blue provide a link to our USPS history and legacy. We won't forget where we came from as we journey to where we're going.
The road ahead is filled with new adventures, opportunity, and growth. If you're in our community, join us on the path to fun and success!
You Own The Credit Union
When you join Blue Eagle Credit Union you become an owner! We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Therefore, the first $5 you deposit in your account represents your share in the credit union.
What you do has an impact. Use it, don’t lose it! The more business you do with your credit union, the more success the cooperative you own is as well. Everyone benefits. Don't forget to bring your family and friends in too! They'll want a piece of this pie. We're financially strong and growing!
Have a voice. Again, it's YOUR credit union. You get a say in how it's run, what products and services we offer, and where we grow next. How? Simply share your thoughts with us. The more we know what is important to our members, the better we're able to serve you. Additionally, you may decide you'd like to volunteer on our Board of Directors. Yep, you read that right. Our Board of Directors is volunteer and made up of members, just like you, who want to make a difference!
So, get involved and make your voice heard!
