Free Checking Account

This may be one of the few things you can get your teenager for free, and it will help them learn basic money management.

We're Local Parents Too

We live here, just like you. Our kids go to school here, are in local 4H clubs, and they even transact with Mocse. Not a cold mega credit union, this is banking with your neighbors.

Free checking account

Kids can learn spending, saving, and giving back

Teenagers can open a Love Our Community Checking paired with Round Up to a Rewards account. This means they can get a free checking account and, if they wish, they can round up debit card purchases to the nearest dollar. The difference will be deposited into a high yield Reward savings account[1]. Perhaps the most awesome feature of Love Our Community Checking: Mocse will donate a penny to Love Stanislaus County with every swipe of a debit card -- at no cost to the account holder. Our young members can learn the power of paying themselves first, and the power of doing good for their community.

Let your young person use all that tech to their advantage

We know it is hard to compete for your child's attention against their phone or computer. Now their technical literacy can help them be more financially responsible. Your child can log into their Mocse account online and in the mobile app to view and manage their savings balance, leading them to have greater awareness of their finances.

Valeria, the banker who assisted me in both opening my account, and subsequently helped me open a new Visa, which will help me immensely. She was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and very helpful in helping meet my banking needs. I will be staying with Mocse for years to come with bankers like Valeralua.

I have always received excellent customer service, whether I come into the branch or make a phone call. I have always been greeted with a smile when I visit a branch; and when I call customer service have always talked to a friendly and helpful representative.

Mocse exemplifies in excellent customer service. Compassion and Human Understanding is so appreciated during this venture in society. So many misunderstandings in our electronic advancements. Mocse stands very tall on being a very helpful clarification for mostly all issues of a financial institution.
