Many families are living without a savings safety net. More than 40 percent of U.S. households have almost no savings to rely on after a health crisis, job loss or other emergency, according to a recent study released by the Corporation for Enterprise Development.
CAP COM works to help families build their savings with tools such as special certificates and Club Accounts. Our School Banking Program is teaching kids at nearly 70 local elementary schools to save by making deposits in the classroom.
“Nearly all of us could benefit by saving more. The skills our School Banking kids are learning by making deposits at school will help them as they become financially independent,” said Branch Manager Nicolle Monast. Families can secure a child’s savings in a iSave.1
A child’s money will grow faster than in a regular Savings Account. When parents choose to add money with automatic payroll deductions, there is no minimum balance to get started. You can also save automatically with payroll deductions and make withdrawals at any time without penalty with Special Club Accounts. With popular options like our Holiday Club Accounts, you can keep a balance of just $100 to earn dividends. Grow your money over time with a regular Certificate.
If you are saving for long-term goals, then a Certificate is just what you’re looking for. What’s more, our 21-Month Allowance Certificate2 allows one penalty-free withdrawal. You can also work with the Credit Union to lay out a financial plan.
