Start Them Out On The Right Foot
After all, achieving a bright financial future is a journey. With our youth savings program, we can take that journey together.
For accounts opened for, or owned by those under the age of 18, we have a special higher-yield savings rate. As little as the $5 needed to open the account can earn 1.50% Annual Percentage Yield (APY), up to $500. Any remaining balance above $500 will earn dividends at our current Regular Share rate. For more information, please read PSECU's Truth in Savings Disclosure.
If a qualifying account is already open, nothing more needs to be done other than to watch your savings grow. Want your savings to grow faster? Set up automatic transfers.
