Why open a savings account for your child or grandchild?

  • Start good habits — Starting early to establish the saving habit is best. It's an important first step and gives kids a chance to learn about money with parental guidance. Over time they build a better understanding of how money works.

  • Be a good influence — Parents and grandparents are the primary influence on kids’ perceptions about money and its use.

  • Build understanding — Saving sets the stage for prudent use of other helpful financial services. When kids become teens they’ll likely need checking accounts, credit cards and auto loans.

  • Be ready for the future — With an established saving habit, kids are more likely to develop into adult savers who will be ready for unforeseen events such as emergencies — and opportunities!
