Most of the time it has to be legal age, but a a minor can have one if she or he is like joined with the perent, meaning that she or he can sign a check and use the debit card and stuff, but for stuff like debt and stuff the perents are responsible, so you can have a debit card when your under the legal age, but still there has to be some kind of adult responsibility involved.
To my knowledge you dont have to be any specific age, my boyfriend had one at 15. You just have to be old enough to understand that its not free money, it's coming directly out of your bank. If you get one make sure you dont overdraft cause they'll charge you for that =/
i think that in the U.S. you have to be 18 years old to legally enter into contracts. Therefor if you are under 18 you would have to have a parent or guardian be a co-signer on the account in order to have a savings or checking account with a debit card.
I think it depends on where you live and your bank. But most places I know, allow you to have a debit card when you get a chequings account. My boyfriend's little brother who is 10 has one.
Actually I've overdrafted before, although you can make it so it will reject your card if you do not have sufficient funds although I am not sure how.
i don't think you can overdraft on a debit card. A debit card only lets you charge or withdraw an amount that actually exists in your account.
im in california, 13, and i got one when i turned 13. im pretty sure it depends on ur state and bank
you can usually get one when you're 11? i'm with natwest and you can customize the card you have
You can get a High School checking account from chase with a minimum deposit of 50 dollars.
In my country it is 18 or at any age if you are married.
I got my first debit card when i was about nine.
