Your Money, Your Way

The earlier you learn about how to handle money, the better you’ll be at it. April is National Credit Union Youth Month, which makes it a perfect time to get started!

How Youth Checking Can Help

NWCU’s Youth Checking account gives you access to your own checking account (with a parent/guardian co-owner). You’ll get your own debit card and have access to Zelle® and mobile wallets like Apple Pay® or Google Pay™. Plus, you can use our eBanking app to access your money any time. You can earn interest by signing up for eStatements and making 10 settled debit card transactions.

To celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month, we’re giving away one $500 prize! If you open a Youth Checking account during April, you’ll be entered to win the $500 drawing!

Visit us at a branch to open your Youth Checking account today!
