Jumpstart Savers Account

Aim for a savings goal

Children can save for something special with the Jumpstart Savers Account. Available for children aged 6-16, it lets them save their birthday money, odd job extras and piggy bank cash into one place, so they can save for the things they want.

Account features
  • Control of their savings
  • Interest on their balance
  • Freedom to pay in and take out their money whenever they like
  • Their own dual-function card when they are 11, providing their parent, guardian, grandparent or other responsible adult agrees

If children are over 11 years of age, they can open and operate the account in their name provided their parent, guardian, grandparent or other responsible adult agrees. If children are under 11, the account can be opened in their name and operated by their parent, guardian, grandparent or other responsible adult. When children have reached 11, they can then operate the account if their parent, guardian, grandparent or other responsible adult agrees.

How do I open and manage my account?

Children can have their own dual-function card (acts as a debit card to buy goods and services and for use at ATM’s) when they are 11, providing their parent, guardian, grandparent or other responsible adult agrees.

The account can be opened in branch. The minimum amount to open and maintain the account is £1.

Can I withdraw money?

Yes, the controlling adult or child if consent has been given to allow the child to operate the account may withdraw funds by using internet/telephone banking/Mobile Banking Service/ATM or in branch. There is no notice period.
