We offer three accounts so you can get what you need and your child can get what they want!

  • Choose our All-Star Savers if your child wants to make regular contributions of any amount, any time, and make up to four fee-free withdrawals per month. Open with just $5.
  • Choose a Christmas Account if you want to give your child practice saving up for something special during the holiday season, or something big like a bicycle or electronic device. Open with just $5.
  • Choose a Certificate Account if you want to make a single deposit of at least $500 and then your child can watch the money grow over time while resisting making withdrawals.

 

Upon your child’s 18th birthday, the All-Star Savers account will be closed and all funds will be transferred into a Regular Share savings account.

Both children and adults may hold a Christmas Club Account so the account can roll over when your child turns 18, and funds will be deposited into their Regular Share savings account on November 1 in time for the holiday season.

Your child’s Certificate accounts may also roll over when they turn 18 and they can access the funds at the planned maturation date.

Our All-Star Savers account allows you to make four withdrawals per month without penalty. There is a $3 fee per additional withdrawal, which is designed to encourage your child to keep saving.

The Christmas Account funds will be automatically deposited into your child’s savings account on November 1 and there is a $5 fee for early withdrawal.

For Certificates, there is a penalty of three months’ dividends for early withdrawal from certificates of one year or less, and a penalty of six months’ dividends for certificates of two years or more.
