Kids Accounts - Join the Roo Crew

It’s never too early to start saving. Henrico Federal Credit Union believes in developing smart money habits from an early age, which is why we offer free checking accounts for kids. Children under the age of 18 may need a parent or guardian as a joint account holder for checking accounts. 

Ms. Roosalina wants to help Penny, Kash and the kids in the Greater Richmond area learn how to save money. Join the Roo Crew for their adventure in the Greater RVA. Pick up your children's prize map and start making deposits. For every deposit, a child receives a punch on their card. They can turn in their punch card for prizes and Roo Bucks. 

Stay tuned for our Good Grades program.

Another way we support financial literacy and awareness is through our school branch initiatives. We were the first credit union in the Richmond area to open branches in area schools.

Currently, we operate four branches at the following schools: Deep Run High School, Hermitage High School, Henrico High School, and Holman Middle School. Although these branches are not open to the public, they operate like our large public branches and they are completely run by students who are supervised by our Financial Education Manager.
