At age 13, consider these financial services for your teen:images

Youth Checking – a free checking account with a free debit card, plus all of the free electronic services we offer so they can keep an eye on their accounts.

Youth Savings – a special savings account that’s tied to a debit card to help them save for whatever they and you (their parent/guardian) decides is important.

Prepaid Card – If they’re not quite ready for a checking account, a prepaid card loaded with their allowance may be a good start. They’ll learn how to manage their money while using the card, without any risk.


At age 16, consider these financial services for your teen:Unknown

First Car Loan – UNITE Credit Union is a great place to get their first car loan. If they don’t have a credit score yet, we have tools to help them build their credit! 

Youth CD – Open a 12-month certificate of deposit (CD) and we’ll give them our current rate, plus we’ll add one basis point for each year of their age!
