About Century

Welcome to Century Savings Bank.

If there’s one thing we can all agree upon, it’s that 2020 has been quite a challenging year so far. As a father, son and banking executive, this COVID-19 pandemic has affected every part of my life. Just as I’m sure it did for you, life as I knew it changed almost overnight; and we all entered unchartered territory.

Yet, even as the bank’s branch and operation center staff cope with many of the same challenges you and I face, one thing hasn’t changed: Century’s commitment to serving the people and businesses of South Jersey.

Century has a proven history of navigating through difficult times. Launched in Civil War-era America, we’ve supported our neighbors through two world wars, the Great Depression, and a host of other challenging circumstances. Today is no different. We’re here to help you through this.

Naturally, our number one priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our customers, associates, and communities. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing at this time, and we are committed to being as responsive as possible to the needs of our customers and associates. We continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and are here to assist our customers as needed. Please continue to check this site for relevant and timely information as we move forward… and move forward – together – we will!

Being a community bank, we take a personal interest in our neighbors and community. We understand that there may be instances where customers find themselves facing financial difficulties, and I encourage those who may be impacted or need assistance to reach out.

Just as we are fervently working to help our business customers impacted by COVID-19, we’d be happy to discuss what options we have at your personal disposal.

We’re here for you. All of our decisions are made locally (not in some other region or state) and the staff at Century is knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated to providing our customers with the very best of service. We’re familiar with the situations, frustrations, and challenges facing South Jersey and are committed to helping our customers and community grow and prosper.

Thank you for visiting our site. If we may ever be of any assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Take care and stay healthy!

Century Savings Bank History

Century Savings Bank History

Since its humble beginnings in 1865, Century Savings Bank has grown from a small building and loan association in Bridgeton, NJ with just a few thousand dollars, to a friendly, multi-million dollar financial force operating from a network of six branches throughout southern New Jersey with locations in Elmer, Gibbstown, Mullica Hill, Upper Deerfield Twp., and Vineland.

Although we’re proud to boast a bottom line of approximately $448 million, at Century Savings Bank we’ve always considered our customers and associates to be our greatest asset. We’ve never thought of ourselves as simply a bank. More than just dollars and cents, our organization values these relationships, which is why we are committed to providing Community Banking Plus –it’s our pledge to provide better banking products, an unmatched level of personal service, and meaningful contributions to the community.

Century Savings Bank offers South Jersey residents the combination of traditional consumer banking products including: checking, savings and personal loans, a complete line of commercial banking and lending services; and the latest in banking technology, including: mobile banking, online bill pay, and a full suite of cash management tools and services.

There are currently six Century Savings Bank branches serving the region. The Landis Avenue location was Century Savings Bank’s third branch and first location in Vineland. In 2007, the Bank built its flagship branch and headquarters adjacent to Cumberland County College and the Inspira Health System in southwest Vineland; and in 2010, Century’s newest location was built in Upper Deerfield Township. Many local residents have come to rely upon Century Savings Bank as a cornerstone of financial strength and support.

Due, at least in part, to the state of the nation’s economy over the last several years, South Jersey has experienced a series of bank mergers and dissolutions – resulting in large financial institutions whose primary focus is to create and maintain shareholder value. Fortunately, a few strong community banks like Century Savings still exist to help consumers by providing sound advice, a broad range of banking products, low fees and great rates.

Century Savings Bank is proud of its record of strength and stability. The bank proudly maintains Bauer Financial’s Superiority Status, earned by sustaining its 5-Star rating for over 27 years. This distinction is received by fewer than 10 percent of the nation’s banks. To achieve this mark, Century has consistently maintained the highest standards in capital adequacy, asset quality, stability, and more. Century Savings Bank has also received multiple New Jersey Bankers’ Community Service Awards in recognition of the bank’s community service efforts.

Century understands that strong neighborhoods are vital to the well-being of our society and economy, so each year we donate thousands of dollars in support of programs designed to benefit our neighbors and revitalize our community. From basic needs and healthcare, to education and culture – Century is proud to partner with a diverse group of not-for-profit organizations to both address the critical needs of, and create more vibrant communities throughout South Jersey. We’re also proud to say that many of our employees donate their time and talents as community advocates as well.

From raising awareness and monies for non-profit organizations, to donating meals, fresh produce, and school supplies for our neighbors, award-winning Century Savings Bank offers true community banking plus; and as we enter our 152nd year in 2017, we are committed to making that “plus” mean more than ever before, with: more convenient services, like mobile banking; more money available for loans, mortgages, and lines of credit; more charity initiatives; and even more community-oriented outreach.

At Century Savings Bank our unwavering, yet forward-thinking commitment to provide more is something that makes us quite different. Maybe that’s why we’re one of America’s oldest banks.
