As a parent, you want to encourage independence in your child when they're growing up, including in relation to managing money and doing banking. But where do you start? Well, a good idea is to open a children's account. Just transfer your child's pocket money to the current account and let them manage that money themselves. In effect, you're giving your child freedom to act independently. But only to a certain degree, because you're able to closely monitor your child – financially speaking – via KBC Touch or KBC Mobile. What's more, your child is protected by the limits that have been set for the mobile app. So, there is no danger of overspending and everything can be checked.
Full and secure control
Parents can keep a close eye on the first financial steps taken by their child. Protective limits are also set in the app.
Small step towards independence
A children's account gives kids the independence to start managing their own finances.
Banking with an app of their own
KBC K'Ching is the first mobile banking app in Belgium that has been designed with young people in mind. Children aged 10 and older can learn how to do their basic banking business themselves in an appropriate environment.
A small step towards financial independence
Banking with your smartphone
Most kids today have their own smartphone. It's no surprise then that they use it to check just about everything, ranging from meeting friends to looking up their school timetable. This prompted the launch of KBC K'Ching, the first mobile banking app for children in Belgium and Europe. KBC K’Ching offers a number benefits:
- Ideal for encouraging children and young people to learn about handling money on their own
- Ability to check balances, transfer money or view transaction records: that's all that young people require
- Safe and easy to check: parents have the ability to set payment limits
