GR8 SAVERS WEEK Runs From 7th – 13th MAY 2018

It’s a special week in Rathkeale & District Credit Union, where we teach children about the importance of saving. There are huge benefits to teaching your child to become a Gr8 Saver! Helping your child understand how to save and why they should save, will benefit them not only in the short term, but also into their adult life.

Children are encouraged to open a Credit Union account during this week and watch their savings “Grow With Gerry”. Gerry will be sharing his saving tips every day, starting on May 8th at 1 o clock on our Facebook page. Keep an eye out for his special saving tips and share them with your children!

To open an account for a minor, you need the following:

  • Passport or a copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • Proof of the child’s PPS number, e.g. medical card, government letter
  • Proof of parents’ address, e.g. recent utility bill dated within the last six months
  • Proof of parents’ ID, e.g. passport, recent utility bill dated within the last three months

Alternatively your child can open their account through one of our participating School Credit Union Programme.

Any child who joins Rathkeale & District Credit Union between 8th May – 18th May will be entered in to a draw to win a cash prize. Also don’t forget to download our FREE helpful Savings Chart to help your child stick to their savings goal. Click here to download.
