EBS Teen Savings Account

Ah, the teenage years – you can’t believe they’re here already. You’re suddenly chauffeuring them to discos on a weekly basis, and buying them the latest smartphones.

But your teenager’s newfound independence could be tough on your pocket (you’re doling out change left right and centre). Now is a good time to get them learning about money management and being wise with their cents. Our Teen Savings Account, designed for 12 to 17 year olds, is a good place to start.

Read the features and benefits of an EBS Teen Savings Account below or request a call back from your local savings advisor – they’ll be happy to meet you for a chat or answer any query you have.

Benefits of a Teen Savings Account

  • The account holder can withdraw or lodge money as often as they like.
  • Your teen will get a one off €20 bonus interest payment. €20 goes a long way when you’re a teenager. And what better way to reward them for saving?
  • The €20 payment (subject to DIRT deduction) will be credited to the account 6 months from account opening if a minimum balance of €50 is saved and maintained in the account for the first 6 months from the date of account opening.
  • Earn a variable rate of interest which is calculated daily and paid into the account half yearly in June and December.
  • There are no fees and charges with this account. 
  • We offer gift certificates available for family and friends who gift an amount into the account.
  • An EBS Debit Card is available for your teen when they turn 16 years of age.
  • Your teen spends a lot of their time online, we bet. So it will come in handy that they can view their account online once they register at here.

Features of a Teen Savings Account

  • There is a minimum opening lodgement of just €1 and the maximum balance of the account is €5,000.
  • Within four months after the teenager reaches 18 years of age, the account will be converted to an EBS MoneyManager Account. We will write to you both when your account has been converted.
  • One account per Teen can be opened.
  • The account is operated using a passbook in the teen's own name.
  • This account is for personal customers only. If the teenager is under 16 years of age, the account must be opened with an adult, who will act as signatory and the mandate to operate the account will be in the sole name of the adult.
  • An account may be opened by a Teenager in their sole name provided they are 16 – 18 years old.
  • You can check out our Teen Savings Rates, or read the full Terms and Conditions of a Teen Savings account here.
