Auto Loan

Getting your first car is very important. When you reach the legal driving age, you can begin to build your credit and apply for an auto loan. You will need your parents to complete this application process with you. Let us know when you're ready for that first ride!

Share Certificates

  • This is a great way to save for something special, a new car, bike, or computer/laptop.
  • You start by putting $500 into this account. Then you watch it grow for 12 months. You can make monthly deposits with as little as $25!
  • Use the savings calculator to predict how your money can grow!

To open a SOCAL account, visit any of our branch offices with your parent or guardian. Don't forget to bring a valid form of ID to get started. Examples of valid forms of ID include: Military ID, California DMV ID, School ID (with photo), or Passport.
