How to Enroll
Step 1: Creating a Fund My Future Account
To create a Fund My Future account, simply visit our website at www.fundmyfuturepgh.org and click “Sign Up Today.” You will then be asked to fill out your name and email address. You will also need to create a password and complete 3 security questions.
Step 2: Setting up a Bank Account
*If you have a child’s savings account, please skip to step 3
The next step is setting up a long-term savings account for your child’s future that you do not make withdrawals from. If you don’t already have a bank account, you have several options:
Option A: Going to a Branch
Set up an account at a bank branch. This could be a bank that you already have an account with or a bank in a convenient location for you to access. Almost all banks have custodial accounts for children’s long-term savings that you can open by going into a bank branch. Please see a FMF team member for an overview of savings accounts at banks in this region.
Option B: Opening an Account Online
Some banks have the option to open savings accounts online. Ask a FMF team member for a list of some of the banks that allow you to open child’s savings accounts online. You can also open a 529 plan online.
Step 3: Linking your Bank Account to Fund My Future
- Sign in to your Fund My Future account using your email address as your username and click on “Link Account” at the top of the page.
- Search for the financial institution that holds the child’s savings account and enter your online banking credentials. It may take a few hours for the account to show up in the portal.
- Sign back onto the site and click on “Activity” at the top of the page. Click on the plus sign under “Change FMF status.” Add your child’s name and click on the “Y” to make the account a FMF account.
