  • Greenlight is on a mission to help parents raise financially smart kids and empower families to navigate life together. With a debit card for kids and teens, money lessons, safety and protection features and more, Greenlight is the app that has your family's back. So you can go far and stay connected.

  • Greenlight debit cards are FDIC-insured up to $250,000 and come with Mastercard's Zero Liability Protection. Greenlight blocks 'unsafe' spending categories, sends real-time transaction notifications, lets parents turn cards off at any time, and gives parents flexible ATM and spending controls.

    Peace of mind and convenience for parents:

    • Transfer money instantly to kids
    • Turn the card off via the app, if needed
    • Receive alerts whenever the card is used
    • Set store-level spend controls to help kids learn to budget
    • Automate allowance payments
    • Manage chores (and instantly reward a job well done)

  • Greenlight is a debit card for kids, not a credit card. Parents load money onto the card from their own Greenlight app. And because it's a debit card, kids can't spend what isn't there. That's a pretty valuable life lesson.

  • Greenlight is bigger than a debit card, and it was built with families in mind. Yes, it's a debit card for kids, managed by parents. But it's also a powerful mobile app that lets parents easily manage and see where, when, and how much kids spend while helping them learn to manage their money. It's three different accounts in one — Spend, Save, and Give. A digital chore board. A saving-motivation machine. A set of flexible parental controls you won't get from most banks.* And a simple, clear view of your child's financial world, complete with real- time transaction alerts. All in one app.

    *Greenlight is a financial technology company, not a bank. The Greenlight app facilitates banking services through Community Federal Savings Bank (CFSB), Member FDIC.

  • Yes! You can use the app to set up direct deposit so your teens' paychecks are automatically deposited to their Greenlight account.

  • Greenlight supports kids and grownups of all ages. No minimum (or maximum) age here.

  • Yes! Once existing Greenlight customers add their Bank of Ann Arbor account as a funding source they can reach out to Greenlight customer service and request to be added to the Bank of Ann Arbor partnership program.

  • No, Greenlight is its own individual app, but within the Greenlight app you can transfer money from your Bank of Ann Arbor account and move money to your child's card, turn their card on/off, set up spending controls, allowance, chores and more.

  • Yes, there are limits on how much can be loaded into the Greenlight account on a daily and monthly basis. These amounts are dependent on how the Greenlight account is being loaded. Funding and Spending limits.
