To help your children get into the savings habit, start by having them cut out pictures of something they’d like to have someday and post the images where they’ll see them often. Then help them open a savings account at Washington Gas Light Federal Credit Union. You can open an account with as little as five dollars ($5). Encourage your child to make regular small deposits each week. Tell them their money will earn interest while it’s in their account. If they keep this routine going, they’ll quickly see their savings grows.
This April, we’re celebrating Youth Month. We encourage you to bring your children into our branch to enjoy fun games, win prizes, and learn more about the Science of Saving.
