Start Saving and Growing Savings Habits Today

Assist your child’s financial growth by initiating their journey towards financial literacy and future savings with either a Youth Savings Account or a Youth Term Share Certificate.

As both a parent and Sun East member, simply provide your child’s social security number to begin at any of our branch locations.

  • Minimum Opening Deposit of $5.00
  • Enjoy Free Direct Deposit
  • Experience dividends compounded monthly and credited monthly

Alternatively, consider the long-term benefits of a Youth Certificate. By opting for a Certificate, your child allocates funds for a predetermined period, committing not to utilize them. In return, we guarantee them a fixed rate of return.

  • Choose from 6 or 12 Month Youth Certificate Options
  • Experience dividends compounded daily and credited monthly

Tips for Raising Money-Smart Kids


Instill in children the importance of saving from a young age; by beginning early, they’ll become seasoned experts by the time they reach 18. They’ll witness their savings flourish through the power of compound interest, enabling them to establish both short-term and long-term financial objectives. Accomplishing these goals will impart invaluable life lessons on patience and strategic planning.

  • Encourage conversations using real-life examples, like teaching them to save part of their allowance and explaining the difference between short-term and long-term savings.
  • Introduce your kids to a digital allowance system to help them learn money management and online banking skills. Sit down with your teens and create a household budget together.
  • Set financial goals as a family to help them understand how to plan and prioritize their spending.
