Junior​ Account

ABA​ Junior​ Account​ is​ an​ extension​ of​ ABA​ Minor​ Account​ that​ encourages​ juniors​ between​ the​ age​ of​ 10​ and​ 17​ to​ learn​ the​ basics​ of​ managing​ money​ and​ building​ healthy​ saving​ habits.

This​ joint​ bank​ account​ provides​ juniors​ with​ the​ opportunity​ to​ access​ their​ own​ ABA​ Mobile​ app​ while​ under​ parental​ guidance.​ Junior​ accountholders​ can​ check​ their​ account​ balance,​ make​ local​ transfers​ and​ payments,​ and​ set​ aside​ savings​ by​ themselves.
