Student Banking Programs - Valex Federal Credit Union - community credit union

Valex Federal Credit Union would love to help students develop good financial habits with both a savings account and a checking account designed to grow with their needs. The earlier your child learns to manage personal finances, the more confident they will be when they are on their own.

Our Minor Savings account is the perfect way to begin learning about interest and thinking about long-term goals.

Our Student Checking is perfect for members in the 7th -12th grade with full features, top technology, and convenience in mind- all with the full support of a parent/guardian as a co-owner of their account.


Open a Minor savings account for children ages 0-17.

It's never too early to teach them how to save their money!
