Cents-ible Savers Club
Our Cents-ible Savers Club is designed to help elementary school aged kids develop smart financial habits early in life. On a monthly basis, an RTN representative will visit a school that participates in the Cents-ible Savers Club and collect deposits from our young Credit Union members. Kids can watch their money grow and learn early how to save.
The Cents-ible Savers Club currently is available at Our Lady’s Academy and the Plympton elementary schools in the City of Waltham. Each student participating in the Club needs an adult aged 18 or older to be co-owner on the account.
Kids of any age can open an RTN Savings Account. In fact, establishing saving habits while young is a great way for a child to learn about finances. Those under 18 needs an adult aged 18 or older to be co-owner on the account.
