School Savings


Little Patriot Savers

With a Rookie Savings account, kids learn how easy it is to save. They can watch their balance grow with every deposit and as interest is posted to their account every quarter.

A Rookie Savings account can be opened with as little as $1. There is no monthly service fee and interest is paid on balances of $1 or more. The account features two great incentives:

  • Good Grades Bonus. Kids can earn $1 for each "A" (or "A" equivalent) awarded in an academic subject up to $5 per marking period.2
  • Family Account Bonus. We’ll add $5 to your child’s account when a household member (who is not a current HVB customer) opens a new HVB checking account with at least $250.00.2
  • To set up a Rookie Savings account, visit your local branch or contact us.

Good Grades Bonus may not be awarded retroactively for grades earned prior to the account being established. Family Account Bonuses are limited to one bonus per qualified household member. Bonus will be deposited to your account within 30 days of presentment of report card, after each marking period end (maximum 4 marking periods per school year). Actual earnings will vary based on current Annual Percentage Yield (APY) and deposit balances for 12 months. See Current APY for this product. If your account is in default, closed, or suspended, or otherwise not in good standing, you will not receive the bonus. Bonuses may be subject to additional terms and limitations and are subject to change at any time.

The Pay Bills section lists all of the bills you've added in Online Bill Pay. To pay a bill, you must enter a payment amount and the date when you want the company or person to receive your payment. You can also select this date from the calendar.

No. We make the payment based on the information you provided when you added your bill. If we have already established a relationship with a company or person you want to pay, we may send the payment electronically or to a location specified by the biller. Otherwise, we print and mail a check to the address you provided. If you enter your account information, we send it with your payment so that the company can credit your account properly.
