Growing Up With the Plan for Tomorrow

If you are under 19 years of age then you can be a RightStarter. RightStart gives you all the flexibility of a banking account, including an ABM Card, PLUS some really cool RightStart Club benefits!


What is RightStart?

RightStart is a savings account.It is specially designed for persons 19 years and under and is only available at Republic Bank Limited. Interest is accrued on the minimum monthly balance and paid quarterly.

Savings is money put aside for use at a future date.

Your savings will help you
  • to get that special item that you need e.g. a book, a pair of shoes, etc.
  • to have money at a later date e.g. to buy a birthday gift for Mummy, Daddy, your sister or brother, or even your best friend
In a Bank, your money is safely kept for you, so that no one can have access to it without your permission.

Your money will be easy to access, wherever you are in the country, especially in case of an emergency

Best of all! You earn INTEREST, so your money grows when you put it in the Bank. Interest is money the bank gives you as a reward for saving your money in the bank.
To be a good saver, you must make saving an important part of your life. You have to decide that you want to save, then look at the monies you receive daily/ weekly/monthly, and decide how much of it you can save. Sometimes you will find it difficult to save because there are so many things that you want – a new DVD game, a new music CD, a new pair of shoes.

Learning to separate your wants from your needs is an important part of saving. So when you are thinking of how you can possibly save some of your allowance, think of buying one (1) snack per week instead of two (2). You have to make a commitment to save!

Tell Mummy and Daddy about your savings goal and ask them to help you save towards it. So next birthday or for that special occasion, when everyone wants to know what you want, ask for a gift in the form of money or a RightStart Gift Certificate.

A RightStart Gift Certificate can be obtained at any Republic Bank branch and it is free! Save your Gift Certificate money and watch your savings grow!
