The Need-to-Knows

*Free day to day banking means you won’t be charged for day to day use of your account - like cash withdrawals and quarterly fees for maintaining the account. Fees and charges may apply for non-euro ATM cash withdrawals and using a debit card for purchases in foreign currency.

You cannot apply for an Overdraft facility on this account.

Your Parent/Guardian may be contacted in relation to any transactions on your account and if your account enters a minus balance (an Unauthorised Overdraft position).

The KBC Teen Current Account is a Euro account. You cannot make lodgements to your Teen Current Account in any currency other than Euro.

  • Time for your teen to ‘Own it’?

    It’s their life and their future is laid out in front of them.

    So maybe now is a good time for them to take ownership of their money. A KBC Teen Current Account helps teens aged 13-18 understand how bank accounts work and helps them find their financial feet. 

    Pocket Money made simple.
    Set up a standing order for their pocket money - avoid that rush to the ATM when they tell you at the last minute they need money.

    Online ordering made simple.
    With their own debit card, your teen can make purchases online without having to ‘borrow’ your card.

    Peace of mind.
    You will experience the security of knowing if they ever get stranded, you can get money to them. 

    How to apply
    Pop in to your local KBC Hub with your teen and we’ll get the account up and running.
