Tip & How-To about Finance

Teach your kids about finances with personal checking accounts

Gettting your kids to manage their own bank accounts is a great lesson in finance for them. Most banks offer student checking accounts with little or fees and very low minimum deposit to open, so they can take their hard earned babysitting money or lawn mowing money and put it in a safe place. Using a student account you can teach your kids about how credit and debit cards work while still having some control over their spending. Since almost everything is online they can learn to track their spending and you can check in on them to make sure they're not maxing out their credit cards!

Most of the personal student checking accounts are free until graduation from college or for a set number of years from opening so it is a good idea to check all the facts before opening an account. You can find a comprehensive list of the top student checking accounts here.

i want to check my checking account status


You can check the status of your checking account by either visiting a local branch in person or if your bank provides online banking.

If your bank does provide online banking you can register and sign in to view your account status. If you have trouble registering or signing in, I would suggest you give the bank a call to help resolve your issues.

Hope that helps!
