First Checking for teens
with Visa® Check Card
White Sands FCU wants to help parents introduce their teenage children to the importance of personal financial management with First Checking – a free checking account just for teens age 13 -17. It is designed to encourage financial literacy and money-management skills.
First Checking is ideal for introducing basic financial management skills, yet full-featured enough to carry the account holder through to college and into the workplace with financial tools like check-writing privileges, a Visa® Check Card and CU Online banking.
Parents can use First Checking to teach everyday financial management by:
- Promoting sound financial behaviors by depositing a child’s allowance on the same schedule as the parent’s paycheck, thereby encouraging prudent budgeting and spending until the next “payday.”
- Encouraging your teen to deposit money earned from part-time jobs as well as birthday or holiday gift money.
- Encouraging monitoring of accounts through free online banking services.
- Most important, First Checking is a joint account between parent and child, so parents are always in control.
Contact us for more information on how you can help your teen gain important money management skills.
