A youth account allows the child whose name is on the account to have access to the funds in the account. Reliant also offers a custodial account, where the funds are for the child, but the child does not have access to the funds. Visit any Reliant branch or call us at 800-724-9282 for more details.

A youth member can qualify to get a checking account and/or a debit card at age 16.
