Youth Accounts

Monty Moose Club

Effective September 1, 2021, Maine Family FCU will be implementing a new Monty Moose (Ages 0-12) program that will also include our Teen Members (Ages 13-18).

The Credit Union is changing the program so that  Monty Moose members and Teen members will be rewarded for their educational achievements. Qualifying members will now be able to bring in their Report Card from school (or other qualifying education) and receive $2 for an “A” and $1 for a “B” each quarter during the academic year. For those with alternative grading systems, qualifying members will receive $2 for a “4” and $1 for a “3”. If the grading system, type of schooling, or situational circumstance is different than those listed above, the Credit Union will review each on a case by case basis. Maximum amount awarded for each quarter will be $10 per student.

As a result of the change, beginning September 1st, the Credit Union will no longer be issuing Monty Moose dollars to spend in our Monty Moose store. Monty Moose Members who currently have Monty Moose dollars have until October 31, 2021 to bring in their “earned” Moose Bucks to be redeemed for $0.10 for every 1 Monty Moose Dollar (not to exceed a maximum of $25.00) that will be deposited into their Monty Moose or Teen account.
