When creating an account for your Minor you need to follow these steps:

  1. You can sign up from the Website or the Application, but you will start your journey by going to our Sign Up page. Complete the form with the Adult’s information, then click Sign Up.

2. Next you will be asked what Account Type you want, click on the one that reads Custodial. This will be a special account set up for individuals under 18, but with the support of an adult.

3. You will get another chance to specify whose email was previously entered, so review the email listed, and select the appropriate choice, although for this walkthrough we should be selecting the adult on the account.

You will need to fill out some information about yourself, but nothing more than what we are federally required to open the account.

4. Then you will then be directed to complete the Minor/Child’s information. Look for, Minor’s Information at the top of the sign-up page.

5. Once you have finished this step you have completed the sign-up process! If everything checks out, you’ll have a brand new brokerage account within a few minutes. Otherwise, we’ll follow up with an email asking you for a copy of your driver’s license or other documentation so we can approve your account.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email

If you’d like to create a login for your child/minor, please follow this page's instruction: How do I set up a separate log-in for my custodian account?

If you already have a Stockpile account created for yourself or for another child and want to create an additional custodial account, please check out this article: How can I add a custodial account?
