Is your Teen looking for Independence?

Did you know, kids who learn about personal finance early in life are more likely to make good financial decisions when they are older?

In addition, early financial literacy helps kids form responsible spending and saving habits throughout life. They also turn into adults who are savvy about investments!
WyHy knows teens are ready to take on the responsibility of their own checking accounts. That's why we created our New Teen Independence Checking Account! Independence Checking is the perfect way for teens to start gaining financial independence as they enter high school. The Independence Account gives teens access to digital banking, a free Visa Debit Card, convenient access to nationwide ATMs, and more.

Independence Checking Perks:

  • No parent/legal guardian required to be on the account
  • Designed for high school students
  • No minimum balance requirements
  • No monthly maintenance fees
  • No overdraft fees
  • Unlimited access to Online and Mobile Banking
  • Online Bill Pay
When a teen opens an Independence Account, they have access to everything WyHy offers. With the Independence Account, teens can check their account balance, set up direct deposit, make ATM withdrawals, use a debit card, learn how to budget, send friends and family money, and make transfers between checking and savings accounts. These are critical financial skills to pick up while they are young! Along with this, they'll also learn how to set themselves up for financial success.

If you're ready to learn more about the WyHy Independence Account, our partnership with Stukent, and how to set your teen up for financial success, give us a call or stop by a branch today!
