Help Your Teen Visualize Their Financial Future with a Student Checking

According to, around 74% of teens aren’t confident in their financial knowledge. With many teens having jobs, learning to budget and building credit are things they can do now to ensure a good financial future. An easy way to help them with that is by opening a Student Checking. Available for ages 13-17, a Student Checking from Citizens National Bank requires a parent or legal guardian to co-sign for the account. This provides an opportunity for both parent and student to discuss their finances, and monitor their transactions easily. We encourage the use of CardValet, an app that provides alerts for when the debit card is used and the ability to set limits on amounts or where the card can be used. These safeguards ensure good communication between the parent and the student as they monitor their account.
