A program for young adults ready to take responsibility for their financial future
If you're between the ages of 13-17, you can open an account at Century and be the primary owner, with a parent as a joint owner. At age 18, a parent does not need to be on the account. Either way, you can enjoy some special perks at the credit union.
Earn money for saving money
For each $5.00 deposit you make into your account1, you'll earn a stamp on a rewards card given to you at account opening. Each new stamp is worth one dollar. Once your card is full of 25 stamps, we'll electronically deposit $25.00 into your account to help your savings grow faster!
No other local financial institution offers this benefit.
Members as young as 13 are eligible for a scholarship
To demonstrate our commitment to suppporting the educational aspirations of our young members, we annually award up to four high school/college scholarships and a total of $3,000.
- Louis Kovarik scholarship (ages 13-15) - First-place winner receives $1,000; runner-up receives $5002.
- William Pauly scholarship (for members ages 16-18) - First-place winner receives $1,000; runner-up, $500.2
Scholarships are based on academic achievements, extracuricular activities, community involvement and a written essay.
No other local financial institution offers high school scholarships.
