It's never too early to begin teaching financial responsibility.   

Early financial planning and savings discipline contributes to future financial success. Here are some "little" tips from Clearfield Bank & Trust for the little ones in your life.  

  • Start your Super Star Savings Account with your allowance, birthday money, or holiday gift money. With a Super Star Account children will receive an annual birthday card and "free" gift. This account is the first step in helping your child develop good savings habits.   
  • Start Saving for College - By starting early, when a child is in preschool or before, you can build a realistic fund through the power of compounding over many years. The earlier you start, the less you'll have to save per month.  Through Clearfield Bank & Trust you can access products designed to help you fund your child's higher education. 
  • Convenient Services – Conserve time, money and paper with Clearfield Bank & Trust’s convenient online banking, online bill pay and e-statements.

 

Tips for Effective Financial Management
  • Set a savings goal and keep track of your child's progress.
  • Allow your child to put your spare change into a piggy bank.
  • Help your child to identify the different types of coins and bills.
  • Help your child to understand the difference between a need and a want.

When you are 18, you may open a savings account on your own. Younger students may open checking accounts with a qualified co-applicant.
