Set a Strong Foundation

A Student Savings account is a great first step toward teaching solid financial skills to children of any age. From learning how to save for bigger purchases to managing a budget and seeing the power of compounding interest, the knowledge they’ll get from taking care of their own money and their own account will yield dividends for the rest of their lives.

Why starting early is crucial

When you are in your teens, time is money thanks to something called "compound interest". Compound interest is earned on your savings accounts at most financial institutions. This means your money has the ability to start making you more and more because you’re earning interest on previously earned interest. It's a snowball effect that builds and builds. The earlier you get started, the more your money can grow.
