Chase First Banking - Student

Chase First Banking

Chase First Banking is an account designed for kids ages 6 to 12, but owned by the parent. It comes with their own debit card so they can experience money firsthand and feel involved with the holiday shopping—and holiday savings. With full parental control, parents can monitor their kid’s spending, set limits, track progress, receive alerts, and more, all through the Chase Mobile® app. The holiday season is a great opportunity to talk to kids about finances and smart spending. By getting them involved in the budgeting process, we can equip them with tools to help pave the way for future financial success.

The best holiday helper this season is right on your phone—your mobile banking app!
