The Starting Point Account
(ages 13-17)

When learning to drive, there's no substitute for behind-the-wheel experience.  And the best way to learn about money is by using real financial tools.

Think of a Starting Point Account as a financial learner's permit, introducing teens to the services they'll use throughout their lives.

  • Regular savings account
  • Checking account - free with eStatements*
  • Free first order of 50 checks
  • Debit card* that's also good for online purchases
  • Student Visa with up to $500 limit* (minimum age 15)
*Parent or guardian required as co-signer.  Other restrictions may apply.

Plus this special savings option:
  • 12-month Certificate
    Open with as little as $50 and make additional deposits any time.†
    † Aggregate amount of additional deposits limited to $25,000.
Brass CU magazine
They'll also receive this free quarterly magazine with financial tips and stories geared to their interests.

Parents — you provide guidance
Just as a student driver needs a qualified instructor, your teen needs you to show them the ropes.  Use their Starting Point Account to teach them to balance a checkbook, track their money, and think before spending.

Anyone 13 to 17 with a parent or guardian who is a PLCU member can open a Starting Point Account.

Take the next step — call (888-495-3400) or visit your nearest PLCU Branch to open a Looney Tunes, Starting Point or Young Adult account today!

Minimum opening deposit of $5 and a one-time $5 membership fee.
