Help your child learn the ABCs of Saving

By age five, many children have already formed attitudes about spending and saving money. It’s never too early to start teaching your child personal finance basics like compound interest. At Palisades Credit Union we want members of all ages to benefit from our products and services. In addition to our regular membership accounts, we offer exclusive youth accounts to members up to age 21.


Our youth accounts are broken out into different products based on age:

Youth Savings
Want to teach your kids about saving money? With our Youth Savings account you can teach your child how to start saving early! Our Youth Savings Account members can earn up to 1.50% APY.Minors under 18 will need a joint member to open the account but can take advantage of their Youth Savings benefits up to Age 21. 

Youth Checking
Our Youth Checking account will teach your child the true meaning of a dollar. Available for ages 13-21, you can instill financially responsibility in your teen with the added capability of a debit card. As your teen grows, they will learn how to manage, save, and spend. Minors under 18 will need a joint member to open the account.
