Student Accounts

Student Savings
At Southern Federal Credit Union, we know the value and importance of learning how to save now, while planning for the future. That is why we are delighted to offer parents such a wonderful program to increase a child's awareness of saving money. After all, they are the leaders of tomorrow. So, why not start now? We hope we can make saving fun and exciting for the whole family!

Children can open a savings account and learn good savings habits early.

Minimum Balance Requirements – Parents, Grandparents or Guardians can open a Student savings with a deposit of as little as $5!

Dividends – You will begin earning dividends when your balance reaches $100 each quarter, with dividend rates determined by the Board of Directors, based on Credit Union earnings.
