Yes, the common bond is extended to grandchildren. The same procedure is in place as if you were setting the junior account up for your child.
Yes. As long as you are a member within our "Common Bond" opening the account for your grandchild or child.
No. We no longer require "same address criteria".
No, you may make periodic lump sum deposits at any time. Since children do not have a regular income, we do not ask that they save regularly.
Yes, we can amend your existing monthly deduction to include a payment to your child’s account.
Yes. All individual Harp and Crown Credit Union members receive an annual dividend into their account.
All we need is a copy of the child’s birth certificate, and a completed application form.
Only the qualifying member may open an account for a child – ie. The serving or retired officer or PSNI staff, who is already a member of the Harp and Crown. Any subsequent family members are therefore ‘care of’ the lead member.
No, we request that any withdrawals are made by the Adult Trustee solely, or along with the child. The Junior Member will be unable to make any withdrawals or changes to the account without the Trustee’s authorisation.
You may call to the office with cash, post in a cheque, or telephone the office with a Debit Card.
Online banking is only available to ages 18 years+ (Junior accounts are registered for 15 years and under). If you would like to check your Junior's balance or make a share withdrawal request, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as quick as we can.
Once a Junior account holder turns 16 years, their account becomes an Adult Saver account. They can continue saving but their personal details must be updated (a minimum £10 per month us required to keep the account active). More detail HERE.
