Membership Under 16

Minor accounts can be opened by a parent or guardian only.

To open an account for a minor under 16 we need:

  • ID & Proof of address for the parent.

  • Birth certificate or passport for the child.

If the minor is aged 7+, they must be present to open the account, and to make withdrawals.

Funds are held in trust for the minor. Withdrawals are only permitted for the Minor’s use and benefit.

2 months before reaching the age of 16, the credit union shall contact the minor and the signing parent or guardian to arrange upgrade of the account to an adult account where eligibility for an adult account is met.  Where no action is taken the account will automatically transfer to an adult account if applicable, or be closed and funds returned to the minor. The account holder will have sole access to the funds from age 16.
