Junior Membership

The habit of saving is best started early. So if you’re under 16 and would like to start saving or you’re a parent/guardian and would like to start for someone, we have a special option for you.

At Killarney Credit Union we actively encourage children to save. We offer a wide range of saving options for children through schools and in Killarney Credit Union.

Grandparents, parents and guardians can lodge funds to Childrens Accounts but only a parent/guardian can withdraw funds.

Child/Minor Account
