Functional Checking & Savings for minors
Our Checking & Savings accounts are available to customize for minors ages 9 and up. Learning to use a debit card and set aside money into savings is great practice for navigating finances later as an adult. Once the young member ages into legal adulthood, the youth account will automatically make the transition with them.
We are very excited about adding a potential new youth to our credit union membership. At this time, online account opening for minors ages 17 and under is unavailable. To apply for minor accounts, please visit a CSCU branch. If you are 17 years old or younger, you will need your parent or guardian to assist you and to provide their own information as a Joint Owner of your account.
