Minor Accounts (U16's)

Whether it be opening an account for your new baby or getting your school going child to start saving, having a credit union account is one of the most practical things that you/they can do for their future. You never know, they might need that loan for college down the road!

We have a standing order facility that makes saving easy and before you know it your child's savings will have accumulated into a nice lump sum for their future financial needs.

There is no age restriction to becoming a member of a credit union, as long as the applicant meets the Common Bond criteria i.e. living or working within a ten mile radius.

However, if a member is under 16, they do not have the right to:

  1. Vote
  2. Nominate property
  3. Become a member of the Board or a member of any committee

Application Process (for minor accounts)

Withdrawals Process (for minor accounts)
In order for a child of 7 and over to withdraw from their savings the child and the authorised parent (the parent who initially set up the account) must both be present and sign for withdrawals.

For children under 7 the authorised parents signature will suffice on its own, the child is not required to be present.
