    A FEW DAYS AGO I GOT THE CHASE HIGH SCHOOL CHECKING ACCOUNT FOR THOSE 13-17. IT IS LINKED TO A PARENTS ACCOUNT. MY PACKAGE COMES WITH A VISA CHECK CARD. THERE ARE NO SERVICE FEES. ALL THE RULES APPLY WITH THIS ACCOUNT EXCEPT IF YOU OVERDRAFT IT IS TAKEN FROM YOUR PARENTS. SO BE CAREFUL. IT CONVERTS TO A FREE CHECKING ACCOUNT WHEN YOU TURN 19.

    it depends.....opening an account can be considered entering a contract, and if so you would probably need to be 18. it depends on the bank though. ive seen accounts opened for someone as young as 16. just give them a call, they will be able to help clarify.

    old enough to have money basically. Here in California there is no age limit for savings; however I think you need to be 16 for a checking account. I think it is wonderful you know the benefits of saving for a rainy day! You are wiser than your years.

    God Bless You
