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.
