Youth AccountsMother and daughter saving in piggy bank

Build habits today that will follow you for a lifetime…

Like most things, saving is easier when done regularly, a little at a time, and when you start early - whether it's from your allowance, a job, or a gift you receive. Our Youth Accounts were created with this philosophy. WestEdge® Youth Accounts are designed for members up to 17 years old. These accounts are set up with low minimum balance requirements for added saving success and offer many saving incentives. Ask your Financial Services Representative how to qualify for additional deposits with a WestEdge® Youth Account.

Encouraging youths to save for a bright financial future

We value our youth and would like to see you grow and flourish. That's why we believe in using positive encouragement and showing you how fun it can be in two ways:

  • Fill your punch card and earn a prize
  • Enter our monthly drawing to earn cash prizes

It's that simple… and FUN!

Youth Certificate Accounts

Certificate Accounts are for specific amounts of money you set away for a set period of time. Over time (during your selected term of the certificate) your money will grow because of the dividends that accrue on the account. This method of saving generally earns better dividend rates compared to regular savings accounts. And unlike regular certificates, you can add money to your certificate at any time to increase your savings! To learn more about our Youth Certificates contact a Financial Service Representative at (360) 734-5790.
