Education Through Participation
Tomorrow’s leaders are today’s youth, beginning to understand the importance of balancing a budget and saving for future purchases.
PrimeWay Federal Credit Union is a dedicated investor in the young members of our credit union, and we provide three levels of membership to help encourage a greater understanding of financial responsibility. Parents, too, can use these tools to teach valuable lessons about money.
BigDogz (12 years old and younger)
This is the club for youngsters ready to have fun while learning about money. It's designed to build up savings accounts, but checking isn't available. You can check out BigDogz for special offers on certificates of deposit and more!
JAM (Junior Adult Members, 13 to 17-year-olds)
Teenagers need additional financial guidance as they often begin to work their first jobs. JAM allows them to open a free checking account with ATM card. And when members reach 14, they can open a joint checking account with a parent who quailifies.
MyFunds (18 to 23-year-olds)
College years mean more independence and greater responsibility. MyFunds provides a flexible checking account option plus a credit card. Scholarships also are available from PrimeWay Federal Credit Union to MyFunds members.
