Young Saver Account

A savings account for our younger members. This is a great way to begin to save small or even larger amounts.

Leeds Credit Union’s Young Saver Account is a great way to give children and young people the tools to build healthy savings habits, to take with them into adulthood.

Account name

  • Young Saver Account

What is the interest rate?

  • Unlike banks and building societies, we don’t pay an interest rate on your savings. Instead, we aim to pay a quarterly/annual dividend to all qualifying members. The amount of the dividend is set by the Leeds Credit Union Board each quarter/year. Please be aware that some years no dividend may be paid.

How do I open and manage my account?

  • You must be aged 18 or under
  • You, or a parent/guardian, must be a member of Leeds Credit Union. To become a member you or your parent/guardian must live or work in Leeds, Wakefield or the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham, or by associated with one of our partners.
How to open an account
  • You can open a Young Saver Account in branch or by downloading and posting an application form.
Operating the account
  • You can manage the account on behalf of the young saver online, in branch or via our mobile app.
  • Minimum opening deposit: £1
  • Minimum operating balance: £1
Can I withdraw the money?
  • You can make unlimited withdrawals each year via our branches.
Additional information
  • If a dividend is paid, it is paid gross of tax, that is with no tax deducted.
