Minor Accounts & GR8 Savers

Minor Accounts

Children under the age of 16 cannot be members of a credit union. However, their parent or legal guardian may open a deposit account for them. To do so, the following conditions must be met:

Minor accounts
Transfer to Full Membership

Two months before their 16th birthday, the minor and his/her signing parent or guardian will receive notification that, upon reaching the age of 16, they will be required to either withdraw the savings balance in their minor account or join the credit union. Minors must have a minimum shareholding of £5 before the account can be transferred.

A Member Application and Consent to Use and Disclosure of Information/Data Protection Form will be enclosed. If the minor takes no action, he/she will be deemed to have applied for membership.

If they do not indicate their wish to withdraw their savings balance, we will upon their 16th birthday, deduct the £1.00 entrance fee and transfer their savings into a new account in their name. In order to activate their account, the 16-year-old must visit our office with their signing parent or guardian, return their completed Membership Application and Consent to Use and Disclosure of Information/Data Protection Form, and provide two acceptable forms of identification.
