PUTMA (Pennsylvania Uniform Transfers to Minors Act)

The PUTMA Youth Account provides a way for an adult to save on behalf of a child.

A Traditions Bank PUTMA Account allows any adult to act as the account custodian for a young person under 21. Adult custodians can make deposits into the account and gift them to the child at a later date

The custodian grows the account, and the minor child has no transaction authority. When the child turns 21, the custodian transfers the funds in the account to the child’s ownership, giving them a head start in reaching their financial goals.

Young Traditions Savings Account

Young Traditions Savings Account

A Young Traditions Savings Account is ideal for helping children ages 6-12 to save for the future.

The account custodian, who are Traditions Bank customers, are co-owners on the account. From an early age, your child can deposit coins and cash, monitor their balance, and watch their deposits grow. The account custodian may also transfer funds from other Traditions Bank accounts into the savings account.

Between the ages of 13-22, as long as the child has a parent or a grandparent who is a Traditions Bank account holder, they may have the account in their name alone.
