A Present that Gives Forever: Youth Accounts

Sep 21, 2018

This year, give the child or teen in yourRCU mascot Reddy with a giftlife a youth account from RCU. Imagine what you could have accomplished if you’d started saving early. Your child can save for his or her first car, college tuition, or even early retirement! RCU offers three different types of accounts—one for kids, another for teens, and yet another for young adults.

  • Jr. Ranger: For kids up to 12 years old. Dividends are paid quarterly on balances as low as $10. Free quarterly newsletter with savings tips, games and comics. Membership in the M3 Money Club, with free puzzles, games, and educational articles.
  • Jr. Partner: For teens ages 13 through 17. Free quarterly newsletter with earning and savings tips, fun facts, and more. FREE debit or ATM card with maximum daily limits set by responsible adult on account. Access to the Elements of Money, featuring podcasts, articles, and contests.
  • Start Smart: For young adults between the ages of 18-24. No monthly fees or balance requirements. Free overdraft protection and automated services such as direct deposit, payroll deductions, bill pay, alerts, and more!

If the young people in your life learn to save early, that truly is a gift that will help them all their lives. When a Jr. Ranger or Jr. Partner account is opened, the young person gets a certificate saying, “an account has been opened in your name” and a free gift. Visit, call 1 (800) 479-7928, or talk to your branch representative to get started.
