Teaching real-life money skills to under 14s
Easy to use. Secure.
Fun, secure way to teach your child money management, with the reassurance of parental account controls. Your child can only transfer money between their own accounts in the CommBank Youth app.
With their own bank accounts, your child can learn to save and spend responsibly in the CommBank Youth app.
Open either of these and your child will get a NetBank client number.
Got a Youthsaver but no NetBank client number? If you can see your child’s account in your NetBank or CommBank app, you can set this up online.
Otherwise, we can set this up in branch. You’ll just need to bring along personal ID, like your driver's licence and child’s birth certificate.
You’re ready to start helping your child make earning, saving and responsible spending decisions using their Smart Access Account for Youth and Youthsaver account in the CommBank Youth app.
Manage real money, digitally
- Check account balance and transactions at a glance
- Set a savings goal, track progress and celebrate with a virtual high five when the goal’s been reached
- Prompts to get your child thinking before they transfer or spend their money

- Transfer money between Youthsaver account and Smart Access Account for Youth depending on saving and spending choices
