Teen & Student Checking

Freestyle Checking

For teens ages 13 to 17 years old

"Adulting" is a term in the Urban Dictionary referring to doing grown up things and holding responsibilities.

What better way for a teen to take that first step towards "adulting" than to have their own checking account! Teens who learn how to be responsible with their money today are more likely to make good financial decisions tomorrow.

Tips for Parents & Guardians

What's the key to teaching your teen smart money management skills? It's to talk about money. Teens are naturally interested in the topic and want to learn more.

  1.  Help your teen review his/her bank statement.
  2.  Discuss smart spending habits and brainstorm ways they can spend smarter to reach savings goals faster.
  3.  Encourage your teen to set aside part of the money from their summer job or gifts from grandparents. Saving 10% of their income is a great goal, and will start them down the path to responsible adulthood and living within their means.
