FAQs

Why do I need an adult to open a kids savings account?

Bellwether cannot open a kid's savings account without the presence and signature of a parent or legal guardian. That's because minors cannot legally consent and sign the credit union's agreements if they are under the age of 16.

Can a parent access a kids savings account?

If the adult is a joint owner or a custodial presence on the account, they will have full access to the funds.
