How MyMoney can help you

MyMoney

MyMoney comes in two parts: MySavings and MyAccount, making it easy to start managing savings and spending money for children from ages 7 to 17.

  • We have a savings account from the age of 7, and
  • A current account from the age of 11

Savings account

MySavings is a straightforward savings account if you are aged 7 to 17 and a UK resident. With MySavings you can:

  • Get a free money box when you open your account (ages 7-10)
  • Open an account with as little as £10
  • Earn interest on your savings every month
  • Access your savings at any HSBC counter using your Cash Book

For every withdrawal or transfer over £50, under-11s will need a parent or guardian's signature.
