Youth First Program

Children start retaining information at a very young age, which is why it’s crucial to start molding positive financial behaviors. Our Youth First program will guide your child on a journey through the different stages of their financial life.

Pennsylvania Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (PUTMA) Accounts

PUTMA accounts are available for our young savers to start with a savings account that only the Custodian (i.e. parent, grandparent, interested persons) can conduct financial transactions. The funds in the account are used only for the benefit of the Minor without tax liability. PUTMA accounts are opened with the child's social security number and personal information. Primary Share & Share Draft Accounts are also available with a joint owner (age restrictions apply). These accounts are great for children who are starting to work and need an account for direct deposit or access to a Visa Debit Card*.
