National Credit Union Youth Month in April

What kind of saver is your child?

To find out, stop by one of our branches during April, National Youth Month. Every saver is unique, but most people who save regularly develop the habit early in life.  Learning to delay gratification in order to save for long-term goals is a crucial life skill, and one Family Savings is committed to helping our youngest members develop. 

That's why we create programs and services designed specifically for young people. One of those is our Youth Month program. During the month of April, those youth ages 0-17 who make deposits into their savings account will automatically be entered into a national drawing to win $1,000 from CUNA and sponsored by the GreenPath Financial Fitness program.

In addition, every member under the age of 18 who makes a deposit during our Spotlight Week, April 17-23, 2017, will be entered to win one of eight $25 cash prizes (one at each branch).

By helping your child give a hoot about saving now, you’ll help them soar when they’re older.

Disclaimer: The National Youth Saving Challenge is FREE and open to all youth under 18 who visit a participating credit union during April. While youth are encouraged to make a deposit at the credit union, no deposit is required to enter. Parents/guardians giving permission for their youth to enter can submit on a 3" x 5" piece of paper the following information to the credit union: Name, Date, Current age. Limit one entry per person. Odds of winning depend on number of entrants. This contest is void where prohibited. In May, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will randomly select and give a $1,000 grand prize to a participating credit union. That credit union will then randomly select a winner from its entrants. Your credit union will notify you if you are a winner.


Chip-Enabled Cards are Here!

Family Savings began replacing our ATM/Debit Cards with chip-enabled cards in April. Replacement cards with the new chip technology will be issued as member's current ATM/Debit Cards expire.

Enhanced Security and Fraud Protection. Each time you use your card at a chip-enabled terminal, a one-time code is created to validate the transaction. It's nearly impossible to duplicate.

Widely Accepted Around the World! Your card will be more secure and easier to use when you travel out of country.

If you encounter a non-Chip-Enabled terminal, no worries! You will still be able to swipe the magnetic strip the same as you do today.


Kasasa Account Change in Terms

As of December 31, 2016 members are REQUIRED to sign up for eStatements (eDocuments) to maintain or to open a Kasasa branded checking or checking with saver account at Family Savings CU. The qualifications for account rewards will now be 1.) Have 10 POS transactions post and settle before the qualification cycle ends, and 2.) Have a valid email address on file with FSCU.

Please see the new KASASA Terms and Conditions.
