Youth Accounts

When kids learn about savings at an early age, they make better choices about money, budgeting, and setting financial goals for the future. That’s why we’ve developed Youth Programs through our schools and Youth Accounts at the credit union.

In addition to learning the value of saving money, Youth Account Savers receive:

  • A higher dividend rate for the first $1,000
