We all like to be celebrated, and that's what we do with our Savvy Savers! Each year, in their birthday month, Savvy Savers receive a birthday check that they can deposit into their Savvy Savers Account. 

  • Savvy Savers ages 2 to 5 receive a $5 check.
  • Savvy Savers ages 6 to 12 receive a birthday check that matches their current age. (Ex: 6 years old equals a $6 birthday check.)

We offer two options for Savvy Savers to redeem their birthday gift. 

1. Deposit your child’s birthday check at
one our branch locations. 
2. Take a picture of your child’s birthday check, front and back, and send it to Marketing@FitzsimonsCU.com 

Note: We will send you a message either by e-mail or phone to let you know your check has been deposited. Don’t forget to endorse your check on the back. 


The Savvy Savers program is a great way to start an early discussion with children about financial well-being.  Here are some ideas you can use to turn your Savvy Savers’ birthday check deposit into a learning experience. 

1. Discuss savings goals: Talk to your child about ways they can use their yearly birthday check. Should they spend the money on something they want now, like a toy or a treat? Should they save their money for future goals, like college or a special life experience? Should they move their money to a Certificate Account, so it can gain interest? Talk to your child about the different types of financial accounts you have and share your own savings goals. 

2. Take a trip to the credit union: If you are visiting one of our branches discuss different reasons you would go to a credit union in person. Are you making a deposit? Are you applying for a loan? Discuss with your child the difference between a credit union and a bank. Talk to one of our Financial Specialists or Financial Consultants to learn more about their role at the credit union. Don’t forget to ask for a sticker to complete your visit. 😊

3. Let’s write a check: Even though your child’s birthday check is already written out, learning how to write a check is an important life skill. Check out our guide to writing checks and go through the different sections with your child. Or go a step further and write a check with your child and make an additional deposit into their Savvy Savers account.

4. Make a deposit in a snap: As routine financial transactions move online, frequent trips to the credit union are no longer necessary. That’s why we now accept virtual birthday check deposits. Further your child’s learning experience by showing them the Fitzsimons mobile app. Show your child how to view account activity and how to deposit checks through a mobile device.

Note: Unfortunately, we cannot process birthday checks through the mobile app. Please send images of birthday checks to Marketing@FitzsimonsCU.com.
