Helping the next generation
learn about banking.

Since 1831, it’s been an honor to watch clients and their families bring someone in to open their first account with us.

With today’s technology, it’s even easier to pass down the tradition from generation to generation. Children can access their Dedham Savings accounts wherever and whenever they head off to school or start a new job. Help a child in your life learn the value of a trusted community bank that provides personal service and ongoing support.

TIP: If you are a signer on a child’s account(s), you’ll be able to transfer funds or deposit money to their accounts anytime, which is especially helpful in building a strong financial foundation for down the road.
