Teach kids about money with a savings account from Great Erie
Super Saver Club
Teaching them about money while they're young by opening a savings account, is a great way to help them mature and become financially responsible. There's no better way to learn about money than with our youth savings account.
COMING SOON is our Super Savers Club! It is a savings program designed especially for kids up to 12 years of age, brought to you by Great Erie Federal Credit Union. Kids learn about saving and other important financial topics through educational stories, games, and entertaining activities. Best of all, the club is fun and FREE!
