    The Comdirect children's account offers children and teenagers a safe and easy way to make first experiences in handling money and manage their savings and pocket money. In addition to free account management, the children's account from Comdirect offers other attractive benefits and features.

    Savings Account

    The free Junior savings account offers an attractive way to save pocket money. The savings account is usually flexibly accessible, meaning you can transfer money from the savings account to your checking account anytime you need it. The JuniorGiro account offers a variable interest rate on the savings. Currently, this rate is 0.75% p.a. The interest on the savings account is usually credited regularly, increasing the account balance. Comdirect no longer charges negative interest. Additionally, the JuniorGiro is a pure credit account, so overdrafts are not possible!

    The Comdirect children's account offers diverse payment options. With the Visa debit card, which is free upon account opening, children can quickly and easily pay with their phone via Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Garmin Pay. The Visa debit card, which is mailed for free upon account opening, allows free cash withdrawals at ATMs with a Visa sign abroad.

    Easy to Use

    With the Comdirect Young App, account balances can be checked anytime, and transfers can be made quickly and easily. Additionally, the app features a handy ATM finder: the smartphone shows all nearby ATMs via maps.
