A Little History on Century Credit Union

CCU has been around for over 60 years. Their original charter was issued in 1954, just a little later than the average CU out there. Today, they have assets that exceed $140 million dollars and you can access your cash from there at over 30,000 ATMs nationwide surcharge-free.

Do they give back at all?

The big question: Does Century Credit Union give to charity and how much?

Based on searching their website for things like “community,” “giving back,” or “charity” and getting no results, I can only conclude that they do not do anything related to charities at this time.

They may do things and just never talk about it, but, there’s no way to know unless I reach out to them directly.

Membership Eligibility at Century Credit Union

If you want to join CCU, then you’ll need to meet some requirements. Those are mainly if you are part of select employee groups or if you live in three Missouri counties. Those counties are St. Louis County, Jefferson County, and Franklin County.

It looks like on their page listing the various employee groups that qualify, it does mention that family members can also get in. So, if you have family working for places like the City of Arnold or Feed My People, you can qualify for membership.

Products at Century Credit Union

CCU has personal offerings and no business products at this time. Their personal products include checking accounts, savings accounts, money markets, club accounts, CDs, health savings accounts, IRAs, kid/teen accounts, and loans.

Their loan products include auto, VISA Credit Cards, Personal Loans, and Home Loans.

There is one type of checking account at Century Credit Union. That is a little less than what you would find at typical small to mid-size CU’s like this one. I usually see two or three at most places, however, this account sort of wraps everything that you need into one.

The main thing you’ll like are that dividends get paid on amounts over $1,000. In addition to that, you get two boxes of checks per year, so, you’ll be set there unless you write a lot of them.

There’s free online bill pay, no service fees, or minimum balance requirements at Century Credit Union. So, you’ll save some money using their checking account. I really like their overdraft protection system, too.

Century Credit Union – Final Thoughts

Century is a little bit smaller in terms of members and product variety. However, their assets are pretty big and their cash is just as available nationally as any other CU’s is. I was hoping to see some info on community involvement on their site, but came up with nothing there. For everyday financial needs like an IRA or checking account, this is an awesome credit union in Missouri.
