Good savings habits to last a lifetime.
It’s never too young to start saving for the future. For our members who are 25 years and younger, our Youth Savers Account makes it easier to grow your money by paying a monthly dividend on balances of $100 or more. That means your money isn’t just sitting around—it’s actually working harder for you.
Here’s an example.
Let’s say your parents start depositing the money you receive from them and other relatives for your birthday, holidays and special occasions into your Young Savers Account. And for the sake of this example, let’s say that the sum total of these deposits is $500 per year.
By your 21st birthday, here’s what you’ll end up with:
|Term of Deposit||20 Years|
|Annual Interest Rate||1.15% APY*|
|Additional Deposits||$500 Annually|
|Total Deposits After 20 Years||$10,000|
|Total Interest Earned||$1,366.68|
|Total Amount in Savings After 20 Years||$11,866.68|
Our Young Savers Account features:
- Interest compounded and applied monthly
- Tiered interest rates
- No monthly fees
As you can see, your credit union has a strong commitment to help kids develop the skills and habits they’ll need throughout life to lead them to a bright and successful future.
