Teen Savings

The Path to Financial Independence

Today’s teens and young adults need to be financially savvy. CRFCU Teen Banking is here to help teens, ages 13 – 17, to learn about money management and financial planning. Many teens have part-time jobs and are beginning to understand the value of money.

This is a good time to learn how to manage a savings account, checking account, or debit card and to plan ahead for major expenses, such as a first car loan or college education.

Youth Certificates

Money from birthdays, First Communion, gifts from grandparents? With a lower opening deposit and the ability to add to it, the youth certificate is a great way to teach kids about long-term financial goals. Open a Youth Certificate for as little as $100.

Power of compound interest

Teaching kids the miracle of compound interest is potentially one of the most valuable lessons you can teach them. Why not use a youth savings account to teach them something beneficial so that your kids bring this habit all the way to adulthood? Help them select an account that earns dividends, like a high-interest savings or checking account.
