Child trust funds

We are currently experiencing high volumes of calls

Child Trust Fund

If you were born between the 1 September 2002 and 2nd January 2011 there is a possibility you were entitled to a Child Trust Fund (CTF).  This is a long term, tax-free children’s savings account set up by the Government. The money was invested in a tax-efficient fund in the your name, and could not be withdrawn until you reached the age of 18.

The Child Trust Fund is invested in the RBS Stakeholder Fund that is managed by the experts at Coutts & Co.

Time to review your options

Turning 18 soon?

If you're turning 18 soon, we’ll write to you 6 weeks before your 18th birthday with more information about the next steps. We will also provide you with a form that you can use to select your preferred maturity option.

 

Before selecting your option

  • We can only accept an instruction from the account holder and can only pay the money into a UK current or savings account in the same name. You'll need to confirm your ID when selecting your maturity option.
  • If you do not currently have an eligible account, you can set one up with most high street banks, building societies, credit unions and the Post Office.
  • Before you decide where to put your money, we have provided some pointers which may help you decide which option works best for your circumstances.

Current accounts

Move funds to a current account

You might want to put the money into your current account as you plan to spend it immediately.

Savings

Start saving

If you want to use the money from your Child Trust Fund for something specific, such as a car, then a Savings Account might be the better option for you.

Investments

Continue investing

You might want to save some or all of the money from your Child Trust Fund for a larger purchase in the future such as a deposit on a house, but before deciding on investing you must first ensure you are aware of the risks.
