Regular saving with the Credit Union makes sense.
Saving regularly can help you afford the things that are normally too expensive for you to buy. Do you have a future goal? For example, your first car, that extra special bmx or mountain bike, an ultra high-tech laptop for college or the next generation games console or gadget. Saving with us will help you reach that goal and now we offer an annual 2% gross interest on all Young Savers accounts (until further notice).
Anyone under 16 years and living in East Sussex, Brighton or Hove can open a Young Savers account with us and can save as little or as much as they need (£25,000 maximum).
Paying in is easy - we can supply a PayPoint card (make deposits at a Post Office or local PayPoint shop), setup a standing order, accept cash/cheques at our Brighton office or even via electronic transfer (subject to correct details being used).
We do not provide statements, but you can access your account online at www.eastsussexcu.org.uk. Just register first and then you can access your account information at any time.
It is generally recognised that a basic financial education given during childhood provides important life skills and can help raise childrens future aspirations.
Every account must be opened with the agreement of a trustee aged over 18 such as a parent, guardian or grandparent who will have overall responsibility for managing the account until the child turns 16.
