Financial Institutions to Kick-start Kids Savings

The prices of goods and services these days are only growing with time, as such it would be wise to start saving.

Savings shouldn’t just be for adults but should also include children.

A savings account for your child’s education will go a long way in paying for tuition fees, stationary, uniforms, etc., all of which can add up to an excess of K50,000.

Here are three financial Institutions that offer kids savings products.

PNG Microfinance Ltd

PNG Microfinance Limited has a Student Savings Account which is designed to assist students aged between 8 to 25 years.

According to the PNG Microfinance Limited website the Students Savings Account offers to its customers:

  • Simple account opening requirements
  • Unlimited deposits & withdrawals
  • Low minimum balance requirement
  • No Monthly fee
  • No hidden charges
  • Interest paid monthly

Bank South Pacific

BSP offers a Kids Savings Account for children under the age of 15. Kids Savings Accounts are opened with a minimum initial deposit of K2 but there are no monthly fees nor are there any maintenance fees.

Additionally, depositing at any branch or via BSP’s Mobile and Internet Banking is free.

Children between the ages of 11 and 15 can open their own Kids Savings Accounts in their own names. Whereas children under the age of 11 need their parents or guardians to act as custodians of their child’s account.
