What access do kids have to their savings account?
Children's savings accounts offer dual access so you can learn to save together. Kids can sign in and check their balance online 24/7, but transferring money requires a little help from the adult on the account. You'll have to sign in using your username and PIN in order to actually move money in or out of their savings.
What access do adults have to the Kids Savings Account?
In addition to everything a kid can do, you can sign in to a children's savings account with your own username and PIN to transfer money, set up an Automatic Savings Plan, and manage account details.
How do kids make a deposit?
Just like you. Kids can make mobile deposits by uploading a picture of a check from their phone or computer, or put a check in an envelope and mail it in directly. They can also use the Transfers & Deposits tab on their account to transfer cash from a linked account. If you'd like to show them how to make a deposit or wire money in person, stop by a Legacy Apex branch or ATM near you.
How do I make transfers?
Same as the above. You can transfer funds into children's savings accounts from a linked checking account (either Legacy Apex or another bank) using the Transfers & Deposits tab.
Can the Kids Savings Account link to other accounts?
You can open a savings account for kids in your name alone or in your name and your kid's name. Then, just link your Kids Savings Account to your existing Legacy Apex account or personal checking account at any U.S. bank. That's also the way you make deposits to and withdrawals from your account with us.
How many withdrawals are allowed per month?
Each Kids Savings Account has a limit of 6 withdrawals per calendar month. Withdrawals also include internal transfers.
What is the difference between a joint Kids Savings Account and a trust?
A children's saving account can only be opened as a joint account with an adult. That way, kids can learn to manage their money while you keep a watchful eye. A trust keeps money safe on the half of the person who set up the trust, typically without allowing them to access the money until a specific amount of time.
Can I open a Kids Savings Account at a Legacy Apex® branch?
Life doesn't just happen within business hours. That's why Kids Savings and other accounts are online-only-so that you can bank on your schedule. While accounts can't be opened at a Legacy Apex branch, they still come with awesome free digital tools (and a top-rated mobile app) to help you manage your money, anytime, anywhere. If "anywhere" does happen to be near a Legacy Apex branch, stop by to learn more about additional banking options only available at our branch locations.
