Apply for a Junior Cash ISA

One of four

Make sure you're ready to apply

Some things you should know to make sure your application goes smoothly:

If the child is under 16, the application to open and manage the account must be made on their behalf by someone who has parental responsibility for them.
If the child is over 16, they can apply to open and manage the account themselves by calling us on 0345 678 5678. This number may be included as part of any inclusive call minutes provided by your phone operator. Please note that we are unable to accept online applications from children under 16.
The current rules for ISAs are subject to change by HM Revenue & Customs and the value of tax benefits depends on individual circumstances.
