At Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union, we think our kids are pretty special! That’s why we have created our kids club just for our members age 12 and under. It’s a fun way to learn good savings habits at an early age. Your account starts earning dividends immediately so you can watch your money grow with every deposit made to your account.
• WHO CAN JOIN?
Kid’s from the ages of newborn to 12 are invited to join the Pennie Penguin $aver$ Club as long as they or a parent or relative live, work, worship or go to school in Elk, Cameron, McKean or Warren County. This account must have a legal adult as joint owner.
• MEMBERSHIP FEE
To join, you must make an initial deposit of $5.25 to open your share (savings) account. A share account is the credit unions name for a savings account. Account will start to earn dividends immediately. There are no monthly maintenance fees.

Here’s some questions and answers concerning credit unions…
WHAT MAKES A CREDIT UNION DIFFERENT?
Credit Unions are owned by it’s members. All money or profits that the credit union makes are returned to the members in the form of dividends. Banks on the other hand have stockholders who invest money in their bank in hopes of making a profit. All money made at the bank are returned to the investors.
HOW DOES A CREDIT UNION WORK?
When you give money to the credit union or make a deposit, the credit union can loan that money to other members. The credit union charges that person “interest” on that money. Interest is a fee that is paid by the borrower for use of the money. The credit union uses the interest to pay bills and to pay dividends to the members for the use of their money.
