First step to financial independence

Parents want to regularly encourage independence in their growing children, including when it comes to managing money and banking matters. But of course, while your teenager is still under 18, you want to keep a parental eye on things until they reach the age where they can start handling their banking business on their own.

If you’re wondering how to go about that, opening a young person’s account is a great first step. You can transfer pocket money to your child's current account and let them manage it themselves afterwards.

 

Stay in control in a completely secure digital environment

Your child is protected by the limits set in KBC Mobile, our mobile banking app, and in KBC Touch, our digital portal. If you’re a customer or want to become one, you can use KBC Touch and KBC Mobile to keep a close eye on your child's financial activity.

You decide whether your child can:

  • Make online payments
  • Pay by contactless without having to enter a PIN
  • Pay by card or withdraw cash above set daily limits
  • See details of their savings account

Banking on your smartphone

The younger generation have grown up with the smartphone. So, it makes sense that they use it for just about everything they do, whether that’s checking when they’re meeting up with friends or checking their school timetables. A banking app, therefore, is the ideal solution for helping them with all their financial questions.

A few of KBC Mobiles capabilities

  • It’s the perfect way to teach children and young people how to manage their own finances
  • Checking balances, transferring money and viewing payment records can be done effortlessly
