Youth Savings

Let your kids watch their money grow when they earn 5.00% APY!* Our Youth Savings Accounts are a great way for parents to give their kids the opportunity to save and to manage their own accounts, since it is never too early to begin saving and to learn financial responsibility.

We offer three versions of our Youth Account, depending on your child’s age:

  • Dollar Dog Kids Club® (Birth - Age 12) to help teach early saving skills.
  • Cha-Ching!SM Savings (Ages 13 - 17) to help teach the basics of investing, budgeting, etc.
  • The EdgeSM Savings (Ages 18 - 22) to provide a safe transition to adulthood.

Plus, your child's account will automatically transition to the next account as they grow.
