OCCU makes it fun and educational for youth 17 and under to be members of the Credit Union.
Kirby Kangaroo Club
Our Kirby Kangaroo Club is designed for kids 12 & under. When kids first join, they’ll get a whole pack of goodies, including passbook and a membership card. And each quarter kids receive their own newsletter, offering tips on saving and spending. Plus, we typically have a bunch of cool giveaways throughout the year!
Designed for kids 13 to 17 years old, the CU Succeed account teaches them important financial lessons so teens will be financially smarter when they’re set free into the big world.
This group also receives a special newsletter each quarter, offering suggestions and insight into financial matters. Of course, we still have fun with regular contests for great prizes!
We also offer an ATM or MasterMoney Debit Card for those at least 16 years old (with an adult co-signer). Once you're 16, you're also eligible to have a checking account, too! Having a checking account helps teens learn the importance of good money management while using their OCCU account.
High School Senior Scholarship
Each year the Credit Union offers its graduating high school seniors an opportunity to apply for its annual scholarship program. The Oakland County Credit Union scholarship program will award five $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors each spring. A total of $5,000 will be awarded. Current high school seniors in good academic standing with definite plans to attend either college or trade school in the fall are eligible.
OCCU is proud to help support the academic dreams of our young students. We are passionate about supporting the local communities and especially the future of our young members.
