Leaders Credit Union wants to encourage excellence in our youngest members. We’ll deposit $1 for each A or Excellent grade you receive, up to $5 per report card. Plus, if you have perfect attendance for the year, we’ll make a deposit of $10 to your account.
Dividends are money you earn for maintaining a balance in certain accounts. An account dividend is expressed as a percentage and calculated based on the average daily balance in the account for a month. Dividends are paid monthly or quarterly, depending on the account. The APY is the Annual Percentage Yield and represents the total actual percentage that a fixed sum in an account would earn in a year, including dividend accruals.
We believe that the best way to lead our youth toward a bright future is to help them build healthy financial habits now. By offering incentives to save, we show our youngest members that saving is worthwhile and rewarding.
