This is a youth savings account designed to encourage good money practices at a young age. Anyone under age 18 is encouraged to bring a parent or guardian and sign up.
Each applicant will get a free piggy bank to start saving, as well as a punch card with prizes to be accumulated over time. Youth are rewarded for deposits, as well as visits to the credit union. There will also be other prize opportunities available to account holders throughout the year, including during the child’s birthday month and during International Credit Union Week.
Kids Rewards Club deposits earn a higher interest rate of 4.50% on deposits up to $2,500 until age 18, at which point the account is automatically transitioned into an MMCCU savings account.
