Opening an account when you’re in your teens

1. Decide what sort of accounts you need

Some accounts are designed to help you manage the money you have for spending, and other accounts are better suited to help with saving. You can get both with this account bundle that includes a Westpac everyday bank account and a Westpac Bump savings account.

Getting paid

If you earn money from a part time job or even get an allowance from your parents, you could arrange to have it paid directly into a Westpac everyday bank account. This can keep your money safe but give you access to it when you need it.


 

Accessing your money

A good everyday bank account should also offer you easy ways of accessing your money when you it. A Westpac everyday bank account also comes with a debit card which you can use to get money out at ATMs and for shopping in stores or online. You can even use it overseas.
