Miner Kid's Savings Club
Children Ages: 0-12

FirstLight's Miner Kid's Savings Account combines the benefits of FirstLight's Dollar Dog Savings Account and UTEP's Miner Kids Club. It's the perfect way for your children, ages 12 and younger, to be part of the UTEP community, while teaching them about the importance of saving, earning, and even investing money.

Start the education process early, so that your children and grandchildren are better equipped to make wise financial decisions in the future.


Starting July 16, 2018, visit any FirstLight branch and ask to open a Miner Kid's Savings Account for your children, 0 - 12 years old. There's only a $5 initial deposit to open your new Miner Kid's Savings Account. There is no cost for enrolling in the Miner Kid's Club, it's completely free, and will be completed automatically after opening your Miner Kid's Savings Account!
