Youth Savings Program

Save Early for a Brighter Future

Teaching your child the importance of saving early will set them on the path to financial success. With a Pima Federal youth savings account, your child will learn how to be smart and responsible with their money. 

Youth Savings Accounts

With a $5 opening deposit, our youth savers earn 3.00% APY on balances up to $999.99*  

Good Grades Program 

Youth account members are eligible to bring in their semester report card to any credit union employee. For every "A", "E", or "4" (or equivalent of), Pima Federal will deposit $2 into their savings account. There is a $20.00 maximum per school year. The following requirements must be met before funds are deposited into the youth member's account:

  • Must be an elementary, middle, or high school student with an active Pima Federal Youth Account in good standing.
  • Show or provide a copy of report card, transcript, etc. to verify student's grades.
  • We will accept report cards twice every year. Fall report cards (August - December) are due by January 31st each year. Spring report cards (January - May) are due by June 30th each year.   




Each year, Pima Federal awards five $2,000 education awards to graduating high school seniors from Pima and Apache counties. Members of Pima Federal who will be pursuing higher education in the fall are encouraged to apply. Applications for 2022-2023 academic year will be available in early 2022.
