Best of all, you can take advantage of JBT’s local, personalized guidance when you have any questions about finances and our financial tools. You can chat with local JBT staff over the phone, through email, or visit any JBT branch for friendly, in-person service.

JBT’s Young Adult services are designed for you! As you get into real-world banking after high school, college/trade school, you might be the person who:

  • Never had a personal checking account before and aren’t sure where to start.

  • Wants to build a solid credit score to be better prepared for a future vehicle or home purchase.

Thanks to JBT’s personalized approach, you have a great ally to help you make better choices as you establish yourself as an independent adult. In fact, JBT has already designed several tools to help you. Below you’ll find an overview of our best tools for Young Adults.

How Do I Build My Credit Score?

Being new to the financial side of life, you likely have no or little credit to support a favorable credit rating yet. Having a good credit score will help whenever you need to apply for credit in the future – for a new or used car loan, home mortgage, credit card, and more. Consider JBT’s proactive way to possibly help build your credit – the JBT Credit Builder Loan.

JBT’s Credit Builder program is a combination loan and savings program that may help you establish a good payment history, an important step in building a higher credit score. This program, along with your plan to reduce other obligations, may positively impact your credit score over time.
