No One Likes Fees, No Matter Their Age

Each account offers a $0 monthly service fee, so your focus can be on building good money habits and teaching them about interest, savings, and finances.

Control and Account Monitoring

Each Youth Savings account is filed jointly with a parent or guardian, who is an active Wellby member. As the adult on the account, you can monitor their activity directly, online or from your mobile app anytime. Kickstart their financial journey with guidance and support each step of the way.
