A new, recently announced credit union for Century is now expected to open by February 2023.
As we first reported last month, the former Pen Air Federal Credit Union building on North Century Boulevard has been sold to All In Credit Union, which has 28 other branches in Alabama and Florida.
“All In Credit Union will take the next few months to remodel the location,” Kathy Scarbrough, Vice President of Marketing at All In, told NorthEscambia.com of the 2,400 square foot building at 8460 North Century Boulevard.
She said the location will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. An All In “smart ATM” will be installed at the Century branch and will be open 24 hours a day, and there will be online video banking for members during regular business hours.
“In addition to serving our current members in and around Escambia County, All In Credit Union will also welcome new members eligible for membership in various ways that are determined at the time of account opening,” said Scarborough.
Pen Air members will be able to use the All In Century branch to transact on their existing accounts in a face-to-face setting. Pen Air’s recently upgraded “LIVE” machine will remain, allowing members to manage their account through two-way video technology while offering extended hours of service and 24/7 ATM access.
“This new alliance aims to improve the lives of our Century community,” said Delbert Lee Morgan, President and CEO of Pen Air Federal Credit Union. “It’s a perfect example of the credit union movement – people helping each other. Our members will continue to enjoy the secure and convenient Pen Air experience they rely on. Pen Air has served Century residents for 25 years and remains committed to providing enhanced financial solutions. We are convinced that by integrating All In into the Century community, everyone wins.
Pen Air closed its Century branch lobby and drive-thru late last year, leaving only ATM service behind. At the time, Pen Air said an “overwhelming majority” of members now use online banking, a mobile app and other digital services when possible.
The closure of the Pen Air branch left Century without a financial institution in the city.
