Be a Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct.

Every April, National Credit Union Youth Month serves to encourage kids to develop healthy saving habits. Together, we’re encouraging our youngest members to open their own savings account (with a parent or guardian’s help), begin a habit of putting money into that account regularly, and learn how compound interest helps their account to grow. 

Open a NEW Youth Account or make a deposit to your Youth Account during the month of April for a chance to win $100!

Benefits of Saving Young

The earlier you start saving, the better your standard of living will be in the future.

The chart below shows the difference in total amount saved by starting your child at birth, at 5 years old, and at 10 years old. The chart assumes a 2.5% Annual Percentage Yield (roughly the current rate offered for our longer term certificates at present).
