What is an online teen checking account?
MONEY teen checking accounts are only available online. That means you and your teen will be able to open an account, transfer money, talk about spending, and practice their budgeting skills-all from the couch.
What are the age requirements?
A checking account for teens is just that-for teens. Once they turn 18, your teen can rollover their teen checking account balance into a Checking account.
How do teen debit cards and checks work?
Your teen will receive a MasterCard® Debit Card in their name that they can use to make purchases or withdraw cash where MasterCard® is accepted. They'll also be able to make free withdrawals at any Legacy Apex or Allpoint® ATM. MONEY accounts are paper-free and don't offer checks.
How do I know what my teen is doing with their account?
As a joint account holder, you'll be able to access your teen's checking account anytime with your own username and password. Set up text alerts and email notifications for card transactions and account activity-for both you and your teen.
What access do teens have?
Teens can check their balance, deposit checks, set up direct deposit, get account text alerts & emails, and manage their account info. They'll feel like an adult, but not too grown up, since teen checking accounts don't come with Bill Pay.
What access do parents have?
You can do everything your teen can do with their account, but won't receive a debit card. Use your own username and password to sign into their account and walk through checking basics together, like transferring money and setting up an Automatic Savings Plan.
How does mobile deposit work?
You and your teen can make deposits anytime, anywhere. Just sign in to the Legacy Apex mobile website using your smartphone or download the mobile banking app.
