Kids Accounts

Get your child on the path to financial success

Monitor your child’s accounts and their activity while teaching them how to be fiscally responsible with their own account. The best part is, all of this is easily available to you any time through your mobile device or computer. Our online banking and Marine Bank app conveniently give you access to your accounts whenever and wherever you need.

Minor Savings

Saving for Your Child Now


Set your child out on the right foot financially from an early age. Your child will be a joint owner of the account, and you can help teach them the principles of banking – deposits, withdrawals, and the importance of savings!

Parental Guarantee Checking

Teach Healthy Money Habits Today


Children ages 16-17 are welcome to apply for a Parental Guarantee Joint checking account with their parent or guardian. They’ll learn the responsibility of using a debit card to access their funds and, as a joint owner, you’ll be able to see how the account is being managed. 

UTMA Savings

Save for Your Child's Future


Set aside funds on behalf of a child, according to the Illinois Uniform Transfer to Minors Act. As the custodian, you are the only one with access to the funds. Once the child turns 18, we are happy to assist you and the young adult with transferring the funds to a more suitable account. 

To open a UTMA account, please visit any of our branch locations or give us a call at 217-726-0660
