It's never too soon to teach children the importance of saving money, especially before they begin taking on more responsibility---like getting their first job, buying their first car or home, or starting a family of their own. Teach kids the importance of saving and managing money early and the lessons they receive will help them make better financial decisions through every phase of their lives.
Young Savers (Ages 15 and under)
Start by establishing a relationship between your young savers and Tower. Apply for Tower membership and open a Prime Share Savings account in your childrens' names. To get started, contact the Member Service Center at 301-497-7000 or 800-787-8328.
Looney Tunes Savings Club
As children grow a little older, show them that saving money is easy and fun. Open a Looney Tunes Savings Club Account to help young members between the ages of 3 and 12 begin making regular deposits. They'll watch their savings grow and earn fun prizes, too!
With Tower's "You Name It" and Holiday Club Accounts, kids can get into the savings habit by setting aside money for the things they need or want. Every deposit they make brings them closer to a savings goal—whether it's for a holiday gift, clothing, a tech gadget or first concert ticket.
Thinking about future financial needs? Open a Share Certificate in your childrens' names. The sooner you start setting aside money for your young savers, the more time it has to grow, thanks to the power of compounding dividends.
Teen Earners and Spenders (Ages 16 to 17)
As you gain independence, you may begin your first part-time job and save for your first car or college education. You'll also start making important money decisions.
