Junior Membership

Savings at Blackrock Credit Union

Our aim in Blackrock Credit Union is always to encourage children to save with the credit union. Learning the importance of saving starts early with a Junior Savings Account. Teaching your child to save for something they want, little by little and watching those savings grow, creates positive habits they’ll carry with them their whole life.

Opening a children’s savings account is important for your child’s future. It means teaching them life skills like planning, budgeting and money management as well as the value of work.

With a Junior Saving’s account with Blackrock Credit Union you will get 

  • A savings account that is flexible and built with little savers in mind. Blackrock credit union allows your child to save big or small amounts for holidays, birthdays and everything in between.
  • A welcoming place where your child can save with staff that serve them with a smile. At the credit union, we are known for our excellent, award-winning customer service.
  • A place for your child’s savings that’s in the heart of the community in Blackrock.

What is a Junior account?

  • A Junior is a person under the age of 16
  • A Junior’s account can only be a single account and the account is in the name of the Child only

Who can open a Junior account?

  • A Parent/Guardian can open an account if the child is under the age of 7
  • If the child is 7 years or older, the child must come to the Blackrock Credit Union office with their Parent/Guardian to open an account
