Start Teaching Good Habits Early
The Montgomery Bank Kid’s Club Account is a special savings account for children 12 and under, with the goal of teaching good financial habits by making saving fun.
In addition to being a great way for your kids to learn about banking in general, Kid’s Club Accounts are an excellent way to save for your child’s future. They’re a perfect place to start a college fund, or you can use it as an opportunity to teach kids how to save up for a special purchase—like a gaming system or a special trip.
Kids Club accounts receive a special 5.01% annual percentage yield, up to the first $500 saved.
Monty says, “Our interest rate means that in one year, you’ll earn an extra 5 cents for every dollar you save in your account!”
Your child will also receive their own Pass Book, where they can record deposits and watch their balance grow over time. When your child’s account balance reaches $100, they’ll get an adorable plush Monty dog to take home with them. Plus they’ll receive birthday and holiday greetings from Monty, and invitations to special Kid’s Club events.
Opening a Kid’s Club Account
You can open a Kid’s Club Account for any child 12 years old or younger—even newborns!
You should bring along two forms of identification for your child or grandchild to open an account at any of our locations. This can include:
- Birth certificate
- Social Security card
Our staff will help you with everything else from there!
In addition to teaching the importance of saving with a Kid’s Club account, there are many other resources available from the American Bankers Association to help teach your child healthy spending habits.
