Youth Account FAQs

Yes, all minor accounts require joint ownership with a parent or legal guardian

Our youth accounts are for ages 0-17, it’s never too early to save and become a member of the credit union.

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.

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.

Yes, your child will have access to their account with a FREE instant issued ATM card

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.
