When your child turns 18 and becomes more financially independent, adding a Share Secured FORUM Mastercard® Credit Card is the next step in teaching financial responsibility. It is a great way to help your student build a strong credit score. Another option is to add your teen-aged children as an authorized user on your FORUM Mastercard® to help them securely pay for gas, food, and other expenses they may have as their independence expands.
A designated amount of money is kept on deposit in the student’s savings account to cover expenditures on the credit card every month.
All credit card purchases can be viewed on FORUM’s mobile app, along with any debit card purchases as well as all savings and checking account activity.
Having everything in one place makes managing purchases and savings easy.
Share secured credit cards are available for ages 18 and up. Adding your teen-ager as an authorized user on your FORUM credit card is available to children under 18.
