Just-for-Kids Programs at the Credit Union

Summer is here, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about good money practices. With school out, now is an ideal time to introduce them to financial responsibility in a fun and engaging way. At MMCCU, we offer fantastic programs designed to help your children learn the value of saving and smart spending. Here are two of our favorites: the Kids Rewards Club and the Greenlight Debit Card. (Find all Kids Accounts here!)

Kids Rewards Club: Start Saving Early

Our Kids Rewards Club is a youth savings account specially designed to encourage good money habits from a young age. It’s open to anyone under the age of 18, and we invite parents or guardians to bring their kids in to sign up.


  • Free Piggy Bank: Every new account comes with a free piggy bank to help your child start saving.
  • Punch Card with Prizes: Kids can accumulate rewards over time, receiving punches for deposits and visits to the credit union.
  • Special Opportunities: Enjoy additional prize opportunities throughout the year, including on your child’s birthday and during International Credit Union Week.
  • High-Interest Savings: Earn 4.50% APY on deposits up to $2,500. When your child turns 18, the account transitions into an MMCCU savings account automatically.

Greenlight Debit Card

The Greenlight Debit Card, along with its app, provides a comprehensive financial education platform for kids. This tool helps children learn to earn money through chores, set savings goals, make informed spending decisions, and even explore the world of investing. Parents, meanwhile, can enjoy peace of mind with flexible controls and real-time notifications of their children’s transactions.


  • Instant Money Transfers: Easily send money to your child’s account instantly.
  • Real-Time Spending Notifications: Stay informed with real-time alerts every time your child makes a purchase.
  • Mobile Payments: Use Apple Pay or Google Pay for convenient mobile payments.
  • Parental Controls: Set store and ATM limits to guide your child’s spending.
  • Personalized Cards: Kids can choose a photo for their card, making budgeting more enjoyable.
  • Secure and Protected: With Mastercard’s Zero Liability Protection, FDIC insurance up to $250,000, and the ability to turn cards on or off from the app.
