Opening a savings account for your child could make a powerful difference in their future. Children who have a savings account for college are three times more likely to go to college and four times more likely to graduate college — even if the account holds less than $500.Teaching your kids about money is a valuable, ongoing lesson that can start much earlier than you might think. Studies show that starting with simple coin identification games at age 2 or 3 can get your child started on the path to basic money comprehension.
Financial skills are important in life, and getting kids started early with smart saving habits will make a big impact on their financial futures. Start by helping the kids in your life with a Southland Jr. Savers Account and our Southland Jr. App. Visit your nearest Southland branch to open a Jr. Savers account.
