Mozo snapshot

If you’re looking for a competitive interest rate on a teen savings account you’d be hard pressed to find one better than the ongoing rate of 5.50% p.a. offered by Great Southern Bank's Youth eSaver. This is account is only for little ones up to 17 years old (yup, your newborn babe can open an account) and it comes with no fees. However, keep in mind that if you have over $5,000 in the account, the interest rate will drop to 1.00%.

Key features

If you or your child are looking to make a bumper savings interest return, then the Great Southern Bank Youth eSaver can help do just that. If the account balance is under $5,000, it’ll come with a high 5.50% interest rate, which at the moment is higher than most interest rates you’ll be able to find on an adult account. However, once the account balance goes over $5,000, any addition funds will only garner 1.00%.

As the Great Southern Bank Youth eSaver account is a youth account, you’ll only be able to have one if you are under 17 years of age. If the young account holder is under 10, a parent or guardian will have to authorise the account opening and be listed as a signatory to make transactions. The good news is you can throw out any concerns about fees wearing down your savings stash, as this is a fee-free zone.

Lastly, don’t be afraid that your account will disappear once you turn 18, as the account will automatically be converted to a Great Southern Bank eSaver Reward.

Any catches

Once your account has over $5,000, your interest rate will drop to 1.00% for the addition funds, at which point it may be worth considering alternative youth savings options.
