April is National Credit Union Youth Month. Rivermark encourages kids to start saving early with two accounts geared specifically for kids:
Dollar Dog: For ages 0-12, Dollar Dog is a fun program that rewards kids for saving and teaching them to be financially responsible. Geared specifically for youth, Dollar Dog earns more than a Regular Shares account.
Go! Money: Go! Money is geared to help your teen become more financially responsible. It is a free checking account that comes with a debit card, Online Banking and Mobile Deposit. A low rate Visa is also available to help young members establish good credit.
Providing kids with the right tools and educating them on money management early in life will help them delevop the skills they need to make responsible financial decisions as adults.
