Savings Quest and MyFi Accounts for Young Credit Union Members
Savings Quest (ages 0-12) and MyFi Savings Account (ages 13-22)
Personal finance and money management are essential skills to teach your son or daughter at an early age. At Members CU, you can focus on financial education as early as elementary school by opening a Savings Quest Account, the account that grows with you. It only takes $5 to open, and there is no minimum balance requirement.
At age 13, the account becomes a MyFi Savings Account and qualifies for an ATM Card (Cosigner required). Teach your son or daughter about their credit union account by helping them make deposits, withdraw money and look up their account information using MEMCU Online banking. Both accounts earn the same dividend rate as a Members CU Regular Savings Account.
