 Account Opening Gift/Account Reward Gifts

Can you say swag? Young savers are welcomed to our Credit Union with an account opening gift.

A pair of account owners

 Primary Account Ownership

Help your kids understand ownership and responsibility. With this savings account, the child is the primary account owner and their parent or guardian is the joint account owner. Youth age 16 and older are not required to have a joint on the account.

Two stacks of cash

 Opening Deposit Match

Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings members will receive a savings match up to $25 on deposits made within the first 30 days of account opening. CapEd will deposit the match into the account for money saved beyond the $5 membership minimum deposit.

Birthday cake

More free stuff? CapEd's young savers will receive a birthday gift each year that can be picked up at any CapEd Credit Union branch.

 Annual Big Saver Reward

Remember your account opening date! After 12 months of account opening, and on each anniversary afterward, when a Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings member saves big (at least $500 within that year), they will receive a $10 automatic deposit into their account. Or, if they're an even bigger saver ($1000 or more within that year), they'll earn a $20 reward!2

Savings punchcard being punched

 Savings Punch Card & Gift

More swag! At account opening, young savers will receive a physical savings punch card. Ten savings "punches" will earn them another gift that can be picked up at any CapEd branch! As a companion to the physical card, savings are also tracked in the Rise App. As Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings members save, they earn virtual trophies and are notified when it's time to visit a branch to receive a prize.

Stylistic debit card

 Debit Card Usage

If your child chooses to request a debit card for their Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings account, this card can be added to Apple Pay or Google Wallet in your child's phone for easier access to their funds.

Anyone age 0-25 years old can start saving with this account.

You only need $5 to secure your membership and open a savings account at CapEd Credit Union.

Nope! We don't charge a monthly fee. However, there is a minimum balance requirement of $5.00.

Not at all! We want all youth and young adults age 25 and under to have access to this amazing account. Reach out to us on the Let's Talk live chat or stop into any CapEd branch location to convert your child's current Savings account to a Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings.

100%, yes! You can open a Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings account for your child online or visit any of our branches to get started.

Both the account owner (youth) and joint account owner (parent/guardian) should bring:

  • Valid Picture ID or Student ID*
  • Social Security Number
  • Birthdate
  • Address

A parent or guardian must be a joint signer on their child's account if they are under the age of 16. A child 16 years or older can open an account on their own, without a joint signer.

You can only open one Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings account per primary social security number. If you have more than one child, each child may have their own savings account.

Of course! Choose either our High Yield Checking™ or Good For Me Checking account and enjoy the benefits of these reward accounts, too.

No need to worry, when a Rise Youth and Young Adult Savings account owner turns 26, their Rise Savings will automatically convert into a primary Savings Account. No action is needed by the account owner.

Absolutely! You can access this and all your CapEd accounts online with CapEd's Mobile Banking App anytime and anywhere you have WiFi or a network connection.
