    More than an account, it’s a life lesson.

    From those first deposits toward college, to weekly allowances, to an official paycheck, a Custodial Share Savings account provides our younger members a foundation for a lifetime of good financial habits.

    Custodial Share Savings accounts are opened under the terms of the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act. A parent or legal guardian may open an account for a minor who is under 18 years of age.

    Custodial Share Savings Accounts are the first step to lifelong saving.

    Opening a Custodial Share Savings account for a minor is a smart way to help them start saving early. It can also be a way to teach foundational banking skills by:

    • Taking trips to the credit union to make deposits together

    • Looking at statements to talk about how saving adds up over time

    • Talking about what to save for and setting goals

    Offering a leg up to higher learning.

    At Wings, we're big believers in the value of education. So every year, the Wings Financial Foundation awards over $30,000 in scholarships to members planning to attend college, university or post-secondary technical school.
