For our youth and young adults up to the age of 17, we also offer savings accounts. These are joint accounts where the minor is the primary account holder and the parent is the secondary. These savings accounts were designed so minors have a sense of freedom, but they also provide the ability for parental supervision over all account activity. It’s another great tool to teach financial responsibility and help shape young adults into money managers.
All accounts whose primary account holder is 17 and younger will be converted to a Junior Share Account. You will not need to do anything to your account for this to take place. The junior share account will act like a regular share account except for 17 years and younger will receive special promotions.
Now for something NEW and EXCITING: Beginning January 1st, all Junior Share Accounts will have the opportunity to open a Junior Certificate. The certificate will have a 2 year term. Alliance CU will add 0.5% to the stated rate. To open a certificate, a minimum of $100 is required (Max. $100,000). Visit one of our branches for more details.
