ABOUT ATL FEDERAL CREDIT UNION
ATL Credit Union was formed in 1956 by the employees of Associated Truck Lines. Eventually, the credit union opened its membership to new employees through ANR Transportation when they acquired Associated Truck Lines.
In 1986, ATL Credit Union merged with the credit union serving the employees of Grand Rapids Transit Authority (GRATA, now known as the RAPID.) At this point in time, ATLCU was serving many members, all in some kind of transportation field. Long distance service became a specialty.
In 1998, ANR Transportation, ATLCU’s largest Select Employee Group (SEG) closed. A few years later, in 2006, ATLCU changed from a SEG credit union to a community credit union, serving anyone who lived or worked in Kent and Ottawa counties.
Finally, ATLCU applied and was approved for a change of charter in 2010. With that came a change of name to ATL Federal Credit Union. The credit union now proudly serves the residents and workers of Kent County.

What is a credit union?
In its simplest terms, a credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Members pool their money so that other members may borrow. The earnings from these loans are returned to the membership at large in the form of higher dividends paid on savings and lower interest rates on loans. A credit union exists solely for the sake of its members!
Who can join a credit union?
Membership in a credit union is limited to people who share a common bond, typically employment or geography.
Who owns a credit union?
Every member has an equal share of ownership and an equal vote in matters concerning the credit union, including the election of its board of directors.
What does the board of directors do?
These members volunteer their time and expertise to make sure the credit union remains financially strong for the benefit of all members.
