Help start the saving habit
Some of the best grown-up savers are people who started early and developed the habit steadily over time. Kids who save learn patience, responsibility and setting goals—not to mention the basics of personal finance.
Whether the goal is a new bike, summer camp or even college, a youth savings account puts kids on the path to prosperity. We make saving fun in our dividend-paying Youth Club Program, which includes a debit card* and even awards cash prizes for regular savers.
It’s never too young to start powerful savings habits. With Service Credit Union Primary Savings Account, you’ll enjoy a 5% APY on the first $500 and .25% APY on all funds over $500**.
Saving Money is Fun Kids Club featuring the Money Mammals
Through the use of games, music videos and $mart Quests, your child will learn about the value of money in a fun and engaging way.
With the SMIF Club, kids have the opportunity to start saving early. When they open an account, they receive a gift and a punch card. When a child (17 years old or younger) visits a branch and makes a deposit of $10 or more the branch will reward the child with a punch. 12 punches earns the child $5 in their Primary Savings Account***. All deposits, punches and rewards must be made by the child. The Money Mammals can be seen in our holiday parades and at kids events.
To open a Youth Savings Account, please call us at 800.936.7730 (U.S.) or 00800.4728.2000 (Int’l) or visit one of our branches.
