Helpful financial tips for kids & teens

  • Get started early: Open a youth savings account1 to get them started. Or join the Miners Kids Club presented by GECU2 and give them a chance to enjoy fun, interactive group activities and other club perks.
  • Talk about money: Have discussions about needs vs. wants. Create a plan to prevent overspending so your child or teen understands the importance of creating and sticking to a budget.
  • Hands-on experience: Teach children about managing money by giving them hands-on examples and experiences. At a GECU Reality Fair, children manage real-world income and expenses. Request a free reality fair at your school.
