Youth Account FAQ’s

Does a Youth Savings Account require a joint owner?
Yes, all minor accounts require joint ownership with a parent or legal guardian

Are there are age restrictions on your Youth Account?
Our youth accounts are for ages 0-17, it’s never too early to save and become a member of the credit union.

Does my child have to have an ID to open their account?
No, while school ID and state ID’s are a great bonus, we only require a Social Security card on file to establish an account for minors under the age of 13.

Can grandparents open a youth account for a grandchild?
Youth Accounts can be established by parents or legal guardians. However, grandparents can take advantage another great option to help their grandchildren on their pathway to savings.  Our Virginia Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (VUTMA) is an account for parents, legal guardians, or grandparents to nest away a financial gift for their loved one. The custodian over the account can decide the right age of 18, 21, or 25 to gift the account to their child or grandchild. Call or visit a branch today to learn more about our VUTMA account or open their custodial account today.

Does my child’s account come with an ATM card?
Yes, your child will have access to their account with a FREE instant issued ATM card

What happens when my child turns 18?
Great question! Within the first months of your child turning 18, their youth account will be transferred into their 01 savings account to retain their credit union membership. But don’t worry, at age 17 we will let you know of all the new added features and benefits on the next stages of their financial life.

Children must be under 18 to open a Youth Savings account, be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian as a joint-account owner, and provide identifying documents for membership eligibility. The account balance will be automatically transferred to a Primary Share Savings account during the calendar quarter following the child’s 18th birthday.
*High yield is for the first $1,000 to be determined by the Board of Directors quarterly. Balances over $1,000 continue to earn the regular share savings rates. Click here to view our current rates.
