Those aged between 12 and 17 can now have their own digital account at Nubank, with the right to a card with a debit function to manage their own expenses. Restricted to dependents of customers who have consented to their opening, accounts will have all the regular benefits of those of adult customers.
According to fintech, since June, the novelty has already gone through an initial phase of tests to measure the adherence to the change of age. During this period, the company recorded that young people engaged 20% more than its adult audience, with emphasis on Pix, which was the most used feature by new accounts.
With the change now released to the entire public, any Nubank customer who wants to request an account for their child can now place the order through the app itself. The only requirement is the minimum age (12 years).
After the application is approved and the young person activates the account on their own cell phone, they can also apply for a card with a debit function.
From then on, he will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the digital account, such as: Pix; cell phone recharge; activation of Street Mode (which gives the app more protection in case of theft); online purchases debited on the virtual card; withdrawal and use of the Boxes – function launched in July by the bank🇧🇷
The tool, which helps clients save money according to their goals, will initially give young people the option of making investments with a yield of 100% of the CDI from the first business day after the application.
