Starting a saving plan from as early as possible is important for children to sharpen their saving abilities and to determine important money-management skills in later life.
Starting children’s savings in a piggy bank or a jar is a great first step and allows them to see their money build up – giving them a real sense of achievement. Once they’ve reached a certain level with their savings though, opening a children’s saving account is a great way to ensure security, success and also a sense of responsibility and independence.
Each new junior saver account (under 16 years) opened in Waterford Credit Union will receive a Junior Savers Reward Card.
For each lodgement (minimum €5) the junior saver makes to their account, they will receive 1x sticker which will be placed on their Junior Saver Reward Card. When 4x stickers are collected, Waterford CU will lodge €10 to their shares.
