Youth

It is never too early to start building a solid foundation for your child's financial future. All youth accounts must have a parent or guardian as a joint owner.

GECU offers Rising Star savings to our youngest members (0 - 12 years old). Rising Stars will get to pick a treat from our treasure box every time he or she makes a lobby deposit of at least $5.00. Also, when Rising Stars earn A/B honor roll and bring in their report cards, they will receive a voucher for free Frenchie Fries at Pal’s. GECU has a Shooting Star Certificate available to our Rising Star members (0-12 years old). This certificate will mature on the member’s 13th birthday. Minimum deposit amount is $100 and maximum deposit amount is $2,000. *

Members aged 13 - 17 years old are transitioned from a Rising Star savings to a Rock Star savings. They are also able to open a Rock Star checking account. This checking is a great tool to teach your teen the fundamentals of personal finance. Our Rock Star checking accounts have several features geared towards your teenager:

  • First box of checks is free (choose from guitar or star graphics)
