An initial $5 deposit in a Kids Club Savings account is required to establish the child’s membership to Chadron FCU. After that initial deposit, the kid is allowed to deposit and withdrawal money as a regular savings account would allow. The first $500 deposited will yield 5.25% interest.

  • Only $5 deposit to start the account
  • Free piggy bank at account opening
  • High interest-bearing account
  • Birthday cards
  • A’s Pay
