At SJCCU we encourage saving for their future with either Kick-Start Junior Savings Account (inhouse) or the Kick-Start School Savers Club. Our ‘Kick-Start’ accounts were created to introduce our young people to the Co-operative movement.

Shares

When you open an account at SJCCU you become a member and owner, through the purchase of Shares. These Shares can be used as security for loans and you can earn dividends when the Credit Union makes adequate surplus. A minimum of 40 shares at a par value of $5.00 is required. However, we advise members that it would be beneficial to own at least 100 shares ($500.00) as this is required to access loan services.
