Custodial Savings Accounts
It’s never too early to teach children the importance of saving. A Custodial Savings Account at Point Breeze Credit Union may be the perfect tool to educate your children or grandchildren about financial responsibility. Here’s how it works:
Your child is the account owner1, but a parent, grandparent or other adult (18 years and older) is the custodian of the funds. Your child can make deposits to the account, but only the custodian can make withdrawals. You can help them save for a specific goal or for things they’ll need when they grow up, like a first car or even a college education. You, as the custodian, control the account until the child is 21 years old and the account is turned over.
