So I just turned 18 a month ago and I'm on a joint account with my mom with navy fed , but if I open another checking account myself , will she see it ? Will she be able to access that account ?
go open a post office mail box… and you can have privacy…
If you open a bank account (checking, savings, or passbook), it is in your name, and your name only. It is only in other people's name if they sign up for it with you.
no, you opened your own account, only you are on the account so no one else(not even your mother)can access that account
If you're 18, it's all yours. No more mom.
No, she will not have access to the account. If you sign up for online statements, she is less likely to become aware of the account.
Why do you want to keep the account a secret? After my daughter graduated from high school, we went to the credit union and I withdrew my name from the account that we held jointly. It's only her account now. I don't have access to it and I am no longer responsible if anything goes wrong with it.
Not unless you let her know about it or she reads your mail.
Nope. You're old enough to deal for yourself.
