MONEY MANAGEMENT

How Can I Help My Student Manage Money?

High school and college are a great time to learn about money management and financial independence. But many parents want to keep an eye on their student’s finances to see how money is being spent and ensure that their accounts are adequately funded.

 

The following resources are available to co-owners of U.S. Bank accounts and make it easy to stay informed to the degree that’s right for you and your student.

 

  • Account alerts via email or text help you stay on top of information that matters most to you. Email or text alerts include payments received or deposits made, low balance and security alerts.
  • Online Banking provides ready access to account information and enables you to make transfers and payments, and pay bills – all from one convenient place, 24/7.
  • Mobile Banking makes it easy to check balances, pay bills and more from the convenience of your mobile device. Simply download the U.S. Bank Mobile app for the iPhone, iPad, Android or BlackBerry.
  • Text Banking offers real-time account information in seconds. Just send us a simple text command like BAL, and we’ll text the account balance to your mobile device instantly.

How to send money if your student is a U.S. Bank customer and you’re not

  1. Send a check, which your student can deposit at a U.S. Bank branch or by remote deposit.
  2. Mail your student a prepaid gift card.
  3. Stop by the nearest U.S. Bank branch and deposit money into your student’s account.
  4. Western Union offers fast, reliable ways to send money in the U.S. and abroad.

Discuss finances with your student

Whether or not you’re a co-owner of an account with your student, the most fundamental way to instill sound money management skills is by setting a good example and having candid conversations about money. Topics to discuss include living within one’s means, using credit wisely, the basics of checking account management and the power of saving even small sums of money regularly.
