Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Atlanta Postal Credit Union's field of membership (FOM) has substantially expanded in the past nine years.

Individuals who live or work in the Georgia counties of Bibb, Bryan, Chatham, DeKalb, Effingham, Floyd, Fulton, Gwinnett, or Muscogee are eligible to join. (In 2012, only Bibb County was included in the FOM.)

As APCU's name implies, the United States Postal Service (USPS) plays a prominent part in the FOM, with employees, retirees, and members of 11 organizations associated with the USPS, qualifying for membership. Some of these organizations are USPS, National Rural Letter Carriers, United Postmasters and Managers of America, and National Association of Retired Postal Inspectors.

Employees and members of more than 40 other companies, organizations, and associations are eligible for membership. The largest of these SEGs is defined as “all State of Georgia employees or retirees of any State of Georgia agency, department, authority, bureau, board, commission, college, university, and elected officials.” A complete list can be found on APCU’s Membership page.

Individuals who are related to, or living in the same household with, someone who is membership-eligible or already an APCU member are welcome to apply. This includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandchildren, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and in-laws of existing members.

Joining APCU and/or opening a Jumbo Certificate can be done online. The vast majority of the lobbies of APCU’s Georgia branches and the single North Carolina branch are open to walk-in traffic, but the Macon and Rome branch locations are currently only offering drive-thru service. APCU continues to accept in-branch appointments to meet with an APCU representative.

Four of APCU branch locations now operate under the Center Parc Credit Union brand.

APCU members can also conduct all of their APCU transactions and business at any Center Parc Credit Union location. Center Parc Credit Union is a division of APCU.

Opening a Primary Savings Share Account with a minimum $5 deposit establishes an APCU membership.

APCU participates in both the CO-OP Shared Branch and ATM networks.

In 1922, Atlanta Post Office employee Claude M. Harrell read an article in Colliers Magazine about Boston businessman and philanthropist Edward Filene and his establishment of a new kind of cooperative financial institution: the credit union. Mr. Harrell believed a credit union's emphasis on people helping people could help improve the financial well-being of postal employees in Georgia. He led the effort to gain legislative support for the necessary laws that would allow the establishment of a not-for-profit financial institution. In 1925, the laws passed and APCU was chartered.
