Great info , tanks especially for the children part. Just to be safe I'll make sure at least $50 is in the acct for both kiddos.
Not a bad idea at all, but with kids they should not have to worry about dormancy in any case until they're 24 (per the .pdf).
You're correct but never hurts to sock drawer some money in their accounts. I'm thinking if they get a few pennies every month or so on interest would that count for activity??
I send $10-$20 into my NFCU savings each month 'just because' as well.
In my case I do it just to have another little 'stash' of petty cash, but it has a secondary effect of also creating activity. (It's also surprising how quickly even that small amount adds up over the months...)
I say do whatever works for you!
