GOOD FINANCIAL HABITS START HERE

It's never too early to teach your child financial responsibility, and a Minor Savings Account from Ameris Bank is a great way to get started. This unique youth savings account is designed to help children and teens aged 18 and younger save and manage money responsibly. You can set aside money in your child’s Minor Savings Account and begin discussing the importance of budgeting and taking time to consider whether a purchase is necessary. This helps your child develop real-world financial skills that will benefit them in the future when they're managing larger amounts of money and paying for additional living expenses.

No Quarterly Service Fee

Whether you have a child who earns an allowance or a teenager who works part-time, they want to keep the most of their hard-earned money. At Ameris Bank, they will. We don't charge a quarterly service fee on our Minor Savings Accounts. Your child's money stays where it belongs — in their account, earning interest and growing for their future. When it comes to helping you empower your child's financial future, we're with you.
