Montgomery Bank Kid's Club
Why a Montgomery Bank Kid's Club Account?
It's never too early to begin helping prepare for your child or your grandchild's future. The Montgomery Bank Kid's Club is a great product that was developed not only to make saving fun for kids, but to also help parents and grandparents teach kids about money and the importance of saving.
As part of their Montgomery Bank Kid's Club Account, your young saver will receive their own Pass Book. They'll also receive a greeting card from Monty on their birthday and during the Holidays. Plus, once their balance reaches $100, they'll receive their very own plush Monty dog!
Opening a Kid's Account
The Montgomery Bank Kid’s Club is available to all children ages 12 and under. Opening a Montgomery Bank Kid’s Club Account for your child is easy. Simply visit any of our convenient Montgomery Bank locations. Two forms of identification are required (birth certificate, social security card, etc.) Our Personal Bankers have all of the information you need to get your child or grandchild set up to start saving.
