Keeping Up with Teens

Forget the next chapter, teenagehood is a whole new book! These years are time of change, growth, and discovery. We believe their bank accounts should reflect that. That’s why we have developed checking and savings accounts specifically made for teens! Whether your teen needs the convenience of a Visa® Debit Card to access cash or you like the idea of being able to monitor their spending, we’ve got you and your teen covered.

Want to add a Visa Debit Card to your teen’s existing savings account?

You can contact a Member Advisor by calling 320.252.5393, by video chatting via Great River Go Live, or by stopping any of our branches, it’s that easy!

Things to Remember when Opening an Account:

  • Parent/legal guardian needs two forms of identification. One has to be a state identification card, driver’s license, or passport (please note if the address isn’t valid on their ID, they’re required to provide proof of address). The second form of ID can be a social security card or debit/credit card with their name on it.
  • Parent/legal guardian must qualify as the joint owner when under the age of 18
  • Minor’s social security card is required at account opening

Guidelines aren’t our favorite, but here they are:

*Benefits and giveaways are for open and active GRFCU Members between 0 and 18 Years of age.  Giveaway values vary. Teen BlenderBottle® retail value is $10.99. All other giveaway items have a retail value of $10 or less. No purchase necessary. A purchase will not increase your odds of winning.

**One punch per business day no matter the amount above $20 minimum. Must have card in person during each transaction. Offer is subject to change at any time.
