Savings isn't just for adults
If the piggy bank is filling up, it's a great time to open a custodial account!
Custodial accounts are savings accounts or certificates opened by an adult* for the sole benefit of a minor. These accounts may also be referred to as UTMA Uniform Transfer to Minors Accounts.
Custodial accounts allow an adult* to set aside funds for the needs of a minor without giving the minor access to the account** until age 21.
*A custodian does not need to be a parent of the minor; this person can be any relation to the minor or a family friend. Under Wisconsin law, only one person can serve as a custodian at a time though a successor custodian can be named.
**The account is considered an individual account under the minor's social security number, and the funds are considered a gift to the minor. The minor is allowed to deposit into the account and receive account information. Once the minor turns 21 years old, the custodian is responsible for turning funds over. Because the minor is considered the account owner, the minor must qualify for membership to open a custodial account. The custodian must also meet general application requirements.
