Interest is paid annually on 31 March and will be added to your Junior ISA.

*Interest is paid exempt from UK tax.

**AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added once each year.

This account has a variable rate of interest. We may vary the rate if we reasonably believe the change is needed. For full details please refer to section 12.3 of the General Savings Account Terms and Conditions.

Estimated balance after 12 months

The estimated balance would be £1,020 after 12 months based on £1,000 deposit, further examples are shown in the table.

This is for illustrative purposes only and is based on no withdrawals or further deposits being made and interest being added to the account.

You can open this account in branch and manage it by post, phone or in branch.

The minimum balance is £1 and the maximum balance is £4,368 per tax year. 

Once the maximum limit for the particular tax year is reached no more deposits are allowed regardless of any withdrawals.

You can pay into your account by electronic payment, or by cash or cheque.

ISA subscriptions can be split in any proportion between Junior Cash and Junior Stocks and Shares ISAs as you choose. However, you can only pay into one Cash Junior ISA and one Stocks and Shares Junior ISA each tax year.

For under 16s the account must be opened by someone with parental responsibility for such a person on their behalf as a Registered Contact.

Transfers in from other Junior ISAs, whether with the Society or another provider are permitted. You can transfer to another provider at any point. We will forward the funds to the new Junior ISA provider within 5 business days of receiving your instruction from them.

This account can be cancelled within 30 days of opening. The Society will help to switch the account or refund the funds together with interest (paid at the Easy Access ISA rate).

Withdrawals are not permitted until the account holder (not the Registered Contact) turns 18. At this point the account will be transferred to an Easy Access ISA and up to date identification will be required to access the funds.

Any funds paid into the account will be a gift to the account holder and as such cannot be repaid at a later date if the subscriber changes their mind.

ISAs can only be held in the name of one individual.

The Society will notify you, if by reason of any failure to satisfy the provision of the ISA regulations, your ISA has, or will, become void. We will make sure that any person to whom we delegate any of our functions or responsibilities under the terms agreed with you, is competent to carry out those functions and responsibilities.
