Frequently Asked Questions About Greenlight

Find out how a Credit Union 1 Greenlight subscription can give your child the tools to develop smart money habits from a young age. 

Is there an app for kids? 

Kids and parents log in to the same Greenlight but have two different experiences. Parents can send funds, send flexible controls, and more. Kids learn how to manage their own money while staying safe and connected to the family. 

Can friends and family send my kids money?

Kids can receive money from friends and family — with parent approval on every payment. In the app, your kids have their own pay link they can share with trusted friends and family to receive money for babysitting, IOUs, birthdays, you name it.

Is Greenlight safe? 

Greenlight debit cards are FDIC-insured up to $250,000 and come with Mastercard’s Zero Liability Protection. Greenlight blocks ‘unsafe’ spending categories, sends real-time transaction notifications, lets parents turn cards off at any time, and gives parents flexible ATM and spending controls. 

Do I need to be a Credit Union 1 member to sign my child up?  

Parents or guardians who would like to use the Credit Union 1 complimentary Greenlight subscription will need to link their CU1 checking or savings account to receive the member perk .
