Lifelong financial success starts here

A savings account is a great way to save birthday money or an allowance, and get your kids started on the concept of budgeting. We recommend that you meet with a Patelco team member to open a youth savings account. You can meet online via Zoom or visit a branch near you. (Use the button above to make an appointment.)
