Youth Savings Account
Join Jasper the Velociraptor on an egg-citing journey to savings through Velocity’s Youth Club and watch your savings dino-soar! Created especially for our younger members, the youth club promotes good savings habits to young people, helping them grow up to be financially responsible adults.
The club is available to children and young adults from ages 0 to 17 years old, and you don’t need to take Jurass-tic measures. With just a Social Security number and $5, your child can open their very own savings account and watch their nest egg grow. After all, great savings come from getting your mind raptor ’round good money habits!
Young adults (15 years and older) can open their own checking account as well — as long as a parent or guardian is a joint account-holder. It’s a great way to learn how to handle money wisely.
Velocity now offers members complimentary access to Greenlight, the debit card and money app that empowers parents to raise financially smart kids. With the Greenlight app, kids learn how to manage their money while parents provide funds and set controls. Features include:
