The First Account, a checking account for 14- to 22-year-olds, is ideal for introducing a teenager to basic financial management, yet full-featured enough to carry through college and into the workplace.
Parents can use the First Account to teach everyday financial management — for example, by depositing a child's allowance on a regular schedule and encouraging prudent budgeting and spending until the next "payday." When a parent electronically transfers money to the account, funds become available through the MasterCard debit card, providing the convenience of a pre-paid card without fees and expiration dates. Account-holders can deposit gift money and earnings from part-time jobs, and monitor their accounts through OnCommand™, our free online banking service. And because the First Account is a joint account between parent and child, you're always in control.
