How do I open an account?
To start saving, you can open a savings account with your local Credit Union. In Hartlepool we are known as Moneywise community Banking, you will find us in Avenue Road.
Sometimes you can join a Junior Savers Club at school. (Ask your teacher if your school has one). You can open a Junior Account from birth or at any time until you reach 16 when you would move onto an Adult Saver Account.
Your account has to have a trustee. This will usually be your mum or dad, your guardian or another relative, Your trustee will help you open the account and may act as a joint signatory until you are old enough to run your own account.
Your parent or guardian needs to show your birth certificate as ID for you to open an account.
When you open an account we will give you a free gift ! How cool is that!
