Open a GECU Youth Account2 for a child in your life and teach them valuable lessons about saving. Let Dru Blue introduce them to saving, while they get a head start on paying for college or save up for a special purchase, like a bike or a video game. You'll help them get on the road to financial success and they'll get to enjoy all the benefits that come with a GECU membership.

Here's a savings tip! Help your child, grandchild, niece or nephew build savings by setting up an automatic deposit. Select the date and amount to be automatically deposited in their account every month, and watch their money grow!
