Teddy Bear Savings Account

It’s never too soon to teach the children in your life the value of money and the Credit Union is here to help. Saving towards a specific goal, or just putting their money away and watching it grow are all great examples you can set for your children or grandchildren. Nieces and nephews too. Activities and tools make saving fun, and help you teach your youngsters the importance of saving. An initial deposit of $25 gets your child started with a Teddy Bear savings account. Plus, you can even set up regular deposits transferred from your California Bear Credit Union account or set up payroll deductions.
