How School Savings™ works

Volunteer parents manage the program at the school

On Deposit Day, students bring money to school for deposit. Generally before school or during lunch break, parent volunteers enter the deposits online at www.schoolsavings.com. After all deposits are collected, the Volunteer deposits the funds at a local participating financial institution. School Savings electronically credits the students' accounts with their deposit. There is no minimum deposit or fee for participation.

Deposits made at school appear on the students' regular account statement. Students earn 10 Super Saver Points for each deposit made at school, regardless of amount. An incentive system manages the Points system and rewards students for frequent deposits through a national awards program.

'Know Your Customer' identification regulations are different for school children. Banking regulators accept confirmation of school registration from school districts as acceptable identification for opening a bank account. KYC Regulations for Youth Accounts
