Getting Your Teen Started Early with BECU

How to Open Teen & Youth Accounts

The BECU Early Saver savings account paired with a BECU checking account is an ideal way to get your teen started on building good financial habits. These accounts benefit both parent and teen because they allow a glimpse into what it’s like to be financially independent. After all, that’s the goal, right?

When you're ready to start, download our checklist, which you and your teen can use to make notes and keep organized. 

Helpful Tips

  1. Don't want your teen to have the BECU courtesy-pay feature? Please ask the consultant to remove it. This helps ensure your teen is declined for any purchase when they don't have the available funds.
  2. Set up account alerts to avoid you or your teen getting caught off guard - receive bank account alerts via text message or email**. Learn how to set up alerts.
  3. Money Manager is a great tool to help your teen establish a budget, track spending, and see spending trends. Learn how to set up Money Manager
