STUDENT SAVINGS ACCOUNTS FAQs

  • A Student Savings account is tailored to the needs of teens and young adults to help build healthy financial habits.

  • You can open a Student Savings account if your child is at least 12 years old. The account automatically converts to a regular savings account when the child turns 19. If your child is younger than 12, you can start them off right with a Cash Club account that will automatically transition to a Student Savings when they turn 12.

  • Our Student Savings accounts provide all the features of a regular savings account, but with a higher dividend to help young adults save faster. There are also plenty of incentives for smart saving including monthly deposit prizes, annual contests, and more.
