New-born up to 16 years

You are never too young to join Sarsfield Credit Union. For New-born to 16 years you will need:

  1. Photographic I.D.: child’s birth certificate or passport.
  2. Proof of Address: parent(s) guardian(s) utility bill, government letter or bank statement dated within the last 3 months.
  3. Proof of PPS Number: Proof of the child’s Personal Public Service Number.

A parent/guardian can open an account for a child from New-born up to 16 years. While a grandparent can lodge funds to these accounts, only the member/parent/guardian can withdraw funds.

How are we different to a bank?

First and foremost the biggest difference is you - our member! You are not a customer, you are a member of the Credit Union. That means you are a part owner of our Credit Union. Each member has an equal vote at our AGM and reaps the benefits of our success by way of dividends and improving services.

Our Credit Union is member focused and offers an efficient, professional and personalised service. Even though you can use our online services our helpful and friendly staff are always happy to deal with your financial needs in person.
