Zard Accounts for Teens

Forget the bank of Mom and Dad. Become a Zard member and get control of your own money.

Zard is a group of LGFCU products and services designated for members between the ages of 13 and 19. This account has all of the things you're looking for, like great rates on used car loans, and none of the things you don't — like a pile of expensive fees. 

Get started

Getting started is easy. If your parent or legal guardian is an LGFCU member or is eligible for membership, you can open a Zard Share Account, which is like a savings account. It's the basis for your membership and represents your share of ownership in the credit union. That's right, as a member you're also an owner and you get a say in how we run things. You'll never get in trouble for speaking your mind here.

What you get

As a Zard member (and with a parent or legal guardian co-signer if you're under 18) you can have your own Checking Account which has low $1.00 monthly maintenance fee, Visa® Credit Card and access to unique loan programs. All Zard members can have their own Zard Debit Card, Money Market Share Account or Share Term Certificates. Plus your funds are NCUA insured, which means your money is safe. Safe is cool. 

Additionally, we offer Zard Group Term Life Insurance for our active Zard account holders aged 19 years and younger. Coverage of $1,000 is available for no cost, and an additional $9,000 of coverage is available for $18 annually.
