START GOOD HABITS WITH SAVINGS FOR CHILDREN
As parents, it’s never too early to start saving for your child. While creating savings for children is important, parents should not overlook the value of teaching children to set aside money for themselves. Children with personal savings accounts are more likely to attend college when compared to peers without a child savings account. How many times have you wished you started saving earlier? Give your child the head start they deserve.
PENNIES ADD UP
Whether it’s a birthday card from nana, a chore allowance, or tooth fairy visits, your kids will want to keep their treasure safe. A Momi’s Money Savings Account is a perfect way. It might surprise them to watch their money grow when they add it to a savings account.
RAISE MONEY-SMART CHILDREN
Most of the banking transactions made during your child’s life will be made online or through an app so teach them how to be smart and safe while using digital banking tools. With Pearl Hawaii’s Mobile Banking App, parents can teach their children how to make transactions, save money, monitor their balances, track their interest, and watch their funds grow.
Easily open a Momi’s Money account and help your children meet their savings goals – whether they’re saving for a new game or looking ahead to save for college, teach them the value of money along the way. Open an account online.

This club was created to teach children the value of saving money and rewarding them for goals met. On occasion, parents like to deposit large sums of money for their children. Unfortunately, this does not teach them the value of money or how to save. For larger amounts, we strongly suggest also opening a Jumbo Savings Account or a Coverdell Education Savings Account with/for your child.
