Key features

The Credit Union SA Children's Savings Account is a great account for those under the age of 18 who want to start saving regularly. This account has a no minimum deposit amount, however to score the 4.35% special interest rate, savers must make at least one monthly deposit with no withdrawals otherwise the rate drops to a lower rate of 0.05%. As well as this, the Childrens Saving Account has no account keeping or transaction fees attached, which is great for any young saver.

This savings account is easily accessed through both internet and phone banking, and with ATM access and free over the counter withdrawals, this account is a great first step to introduce kids into the world of saving.

Who is it good for

Any catches

Savers must have the discipline to make at least one deposit and no withdrawals each month each month otherwise the account’s interest interest rate drops down to 0.05%.
