Introducing the OakStar Bank Missouri Youth Checking Account!
The OakStar Bank Missouri Youth Checking Account is designed specifically for youth ages 16-17 currently in legal custody of the Missouri Children’s Division.* The Missouri legislature recently passed new laws (see Memo CD19-53) allowing 16 and 17-year-old youth in foster care to open checking accounts in their own name without the signature of a legal guardian. OakStar Bank has created an account to specifically meet the needs of these teens.
The OSB Missouri Youth Checking Account also includes a Financial Literacy Incentive Program that includes 7 different online modules. For each module the account owner completes, OakStar Bank will deposit $20 into the account. If the account owner completes all 7 modules, they can earn up to $140!** This program is only available to account holders of the OakStar Bank Missouri Youth Checking Account. To get started, follow the steps below.
For additional information, contact OakStar Bank at 417.447.0535. For more information regarding the Financial Literacy Modules, contact Robin Rees at email@example.com.
