Who We Are

Originally founded in 1961 as Gwinnett Teachers Credit Union, Peach State currently serves 75,000+ members throughout Georgia and South Carolina. In 2012, the Board of Directors voted to change the credit union’s name to Peach State Federal Credit Union to better reflect our membership base. Learn more about membership at Peach State.

The Credit Union Difference

Credit unions are committed to service and have been since their beginning in 1852. The credit union concept is a simple one: People working together and pooling their savings to create a valuable credit resource not otherwise available to them.

These guiding principles of the early credit union movement are still alive today. Credit unions may look like banks in many ways, but their primary purpose – service to members – hasn’t changed. Part of this service is taking credit union profits in excess of expenses and reserves, and returning them to members. This is done in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates and lower fees. It’s what makes credit unions different and sets them apart from other financial institutions. It’s what makes a member more than just a customer. Credit unions are people helping people.
