About Century Federal

Century Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative existing to serve its members. Credit unions, like Century Federal, are less likely to charge service fees than banks, that are for-profit institutions. We do not issue stock or pay earnings dividends to outside stockholders like other financial institutions. Instead, earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher interest on deposits and lower fees.

Century Federal Credit Union, chartered October 10th in 1948, is one of the largest credit unions in Northeast Ohio with over $400 million in assets and serving the financial needs of over 34,000 members at 350+ Select Employee Groups (SEGs) throughout the Greater Cleveland area.
