How to Open an Early Saver Account Online

An Early Saver account will serve as the child’s primary savings account. Anyone can open an Early Saver account for a child! If you’re a friend, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, Parent – give the special child in your life a head start.

If the child is not a GTE member
  • Apply for GTE Financial Membership for the child by selecting ‘Open Primary Account’.
    • Remember, you are not “Opening an Additional Account” under your name, but instead opening up a new, separate account for the child, so they have their own membership at GTE.
  • If they are 17 years old or younger, the savings account will be an Early Saver automatically.

If the child is a GTE member

If the child is already a GTE member, and if they are 17 years old or younger, they already have an Early Saver account!
