Positive savings habits are important to begin at an early age. VECU offers savings programs to specifically benefit youth members 22 years of age and younger.

Features include:

  • No minimum account balance fee
  • No monthly service fee

  • As joint owners, parents have complete access to their child’s account which includes the ability to transfer money to the child’s account through VECU Moneylink.
  • Dividend rate bonus* paid on Youth Savings Accounts in addition to VECU’s base dividend rate.

Good Grade Drawing:
Each grading period VECU rewards two students with a $25 savings deposit for earning good grades on their report card! To enter, just drop off a copy of the youth member’s report card to any VECU office after the grading period. Each A, B, S, or E earned counts as a drawing entry! (Limit of 6 entries per child per grading period.)

*Youth Savings Accounts will earn Apple Plus Member dividend rates on account balances of $4,999.99 or less. Youth Savings Accounts will earn Apple Platinum Member dividend rates on account balances of $5,000.00 or greater. The minimum average daily balance to earn APY is not required on youth accounts.
