At this time, we do not offer custodial accounts for minors. It’s something we hope to do one day, but at present, all customers must be at least 18 in order to consent to all our agreements.

That being said, however, you can create separate savings goals for minors (for your children, for example) and then make deposits and withdrawals on their behalf. This works great if you’re using Betterment as a tool to show them the benefits of saving. You can even select just their goal in the Performance section of your account to show them performance data.

Additionally, if you have a trust set up for the benefit of your children, of which you are the trustee, you can create a Betterment Trust account through this link.
