*Representatives from Greenville Heritage FCU will be in the Money Works Exhibit! You can stop by to play the banking games, get a piggy bank for your child, ask questions about the credit union, and even open a savings account while you are there. Greenville Heritage will put the first $5 in your child’s account! Since the savings account will be a minor account, an adult has to be joint on the account. The adult will need to bring two forms of ID – driver’s license and Social Security Card are the two most popular  – and a Social Security Card for the child. If they don’t have the Social Security Card, a Certified Birth Certificate and knowing the SS# will suffice.
