"Save Money, Be a Ninja" is Great Southern Bank's financial education program just for children. We encourage them to have fun while learning financial concepts and what it takes to be a "Money-Saving Ninja". Opening a savings account and making deposits themselves gives kids a hands-on educational experience.
Great Southern Bank offers minor accounts specifically for children ages 17 and younger. A legal parent or guardian must be an authorized signer on the minor account. Be sure to bring one form of identification for yourself, one form of identification for your child, and your child's Social Security number when you visit the bank to open the account.
A simple errand like visiting the bank seems routine to adults, but can be a memorable experience for children. We encourage you to bring your ninja into a Great Southern Bank location and get them involved in good banking practices early in life.
