A Snapshot Of Corner Post FCU


The Credit Union was established as The Wilkes-Barre Federal Credit Union on March 7, 1936 for employees of the Wilkes-Barre Post Office and other Luzerne County Post Offices. It wasn’t until 1970 that Corner Post FCU opened its first office on a part-time basis. In 1971, we reached a major milestone of our first million dollars in assets and quickly became a full-time credit union serving approximately 5,400 members.


Today, we partner with over 5,400 member-owners and have grown assets to 100 million. Our field of membership has also expanded to Postal employees working in Bradford, Carbon, Luzerne, Monroe, Sullivan, Potter, Tioga and Wyoming counties as well as nearly 70 Select Employer groups.

What was once a “plain vanilla” credit union with only Shares, Savings, Christmas Clubs and Loans of $10,000.00 or less, has exploded into a full-service financial institution with a rainbow of products and services – take some time to explore our Loans, Checking and Savings, eServices and Resources.
