Cents-ible Savers Club
Our Cents-ible Savers Club is designed to help elementary school aged kids develop smart financial habits early in life. Kids can watch their money grow and learn at an early age how to save. Each student participating in the Club needs an adult aged 18 or older to be co-owner on the account.
Kids of any age can open an RTN Savings Account. In fact, establishing saving habits while young is a great way for a child to learn about finances. Those under 18 needs an adult aged 18 or older to be co-owner on the account.
