YOUTH CHECKING

YOUTH CHECKING

For ages 15-22.  Foster financial independence in your child by helping them open a checking account all their own – even without a joint member! Our Youth Checking comes with plenty of safeguards to help kids learn responsible money management: $200 daily limit on all POS and ATM card transactions; overdraft protection from Share Savings account; and no courtesy pay or Opt In option for debit card. Check out all the features and benefits below!

Youth Checking accounts automatically expire on the holder’s 22nd birthday, but can easily be converted into one of our standard checking accounts at that time.
