We encourage young members to understand the value of money. A research project running since the 1970s found kids who were taught about saving, were more likely to have a decent pension in later life. Budgeting skills means less debt.
Introducing our young Savers Account
The account is available from birth to 16 years:
- Encourages regularly saving
- Watch savings grow
- Plan for the future
To become a young Saver
We need proof of their identity. A parent or guardian signature is required as they will hold the account in 'trust' for the junior.
We have gift vouchers that can be paid into a Young Saver Account. They make a great Christmas or birthday present. Contact us to find out more.
