  • I'm a bit confused. It's a debit class in which the youth receives a credit card before they can be liable for the debt? (under age 18) Is that right?

  • Although we have a pre-teen and a separate youth/young adult account program, we have always struggled with the legal age consideration and only lowered our tolerance to age 17 for debit cards and credit cards to catch the senior before they leave their parents' home and guidance possibilities. In many ways, this is too late or at least exposes us to greater chance of not getting the young adults' attention before they leave their nest for college or the real world, where every credit card company and bank is offering these young adults credit cards without their parents.

  • The WECU youth program is actually a Student Visa Credit Card program, but most of our students started off with a debit card. The debit card can be a usefull and beneficial tool to teach first time card users the use of a card with actual available amounts in their checking accounts before working with them on the Student Visa Credit Card.
