Key features

Tiered interest

The First Saver Account offers competitive interest rates to help teach your child how to save money. Interest rates are tiered depending on your account balance, with balances of $2,000 and over earning a much higher rate than balances below this mark. Interest is calculated daily and applied to the account quarterly.

No fees

There are no ongoing account-keeping fees with the Bank First First Saver Account, nor are there any transaction fees. This means that the money your child puts into their account won't be eaten away by fees and will instead go towards their savings goal.
