RALEIGH, N.C. – State Employees' Credit Union has added a Web site to its popular FAT CAT Youth Account Program. Launched in November 2000, the FAT CAT program offers an interest bearing savings account to children up to age 12. The program is designed to promote the value of saving money at an early age by educating kids through fun. The FAT CAT Web site, www.cufatcats.org, includes original artwork, information about the importance of saving and a parent's information section detailing the benefits of the program. In addition, children can play games, read stories, print pages to color, set saving goals and see when and where one of SECU's FAT CAT mascots will be making his next appearance. "The FAT CAT Web site is a wonderful tool for teaching children about money and saving while making it exciting and fun, which is what the FAT CAT Youth Program is all about," said SECU E-Services Senior Vice-President Rick Rhoads. "With more and more households having computer access, SECU is able to bring FAT CAT and the importance of saving into the homes of a lot of our young members." FAT CAT now boasts some 68,253 accounts.
