Do you want to open an Absa child account for your kid in South Africa but do not know how it works? Check out this article.
We will first briefly explain what a child’s account is.
What Is A Child Account
This is an account designed for children under the age of 16.
You have to bring your guardian or parent when opening the account.
The account offers young people a chance to understand the fundamentals of saving and banking.
This project encourages parents or guardians to raise financially intelligent kids who can make wise financial decisions.
Now that you know what a child account is, we will now show you the requirements to open a child account.
