  • Choose the account that suits you best

    Pick from our MySavings savings account, our MyAccount current account, or both (which accounts are available depends on how old you are).

  • Start building good money habits

    Having your own bank account is a great way to learn about managing money.

  • Manage your account the easy way

    From the age of 11 you’ll be able to use online, mobile and phone banking to check your balance and send money between your savings account and current account. 1

  • Only spend what you have

    You can only use the money that’s in your account. So you don’t need to worry about spending more than you have available. 2

MySavings

A straightforward savings account you can open with as little as £10. You'll earn interest on your savings every month, so you can watch your money grow.

Available for customers aged 7 to 17 years old.

On your 11th birthday, we’ll automatically open a MyAccount for you. This will be a new account that will run alongside your MySavings. If you don’t want a MyAccount, just let us know.

MyAccount

Our current account designed especially for young people. It comes with a contactless Visa debit card, which means you can shop online and in stores. 3 And you can also withdraw up to £100 in cash from any ATM, as long as you have money in your account.

Available for customers aged 11 to 17 years old.

How to apply

You can apply for MyMoney if:

  • you’re 11-17 if you're applying for MyAccount (or 7-17 if you're applying for a MySavings account)
  • you can provide proof of your identity if your parent or guardian is an HSBC customer
  • you and your parent or guardian can provide proof of identity and address if your parent or guardian isn't an HSBC customer and you're under 16
  • you can provide proof of identity and address if your parent or guardian isn't an HSBC customer and you're over 16

If your parent/guardian is a personal HSBC customer

Your parent or guardian can apply for you quickly and easily in minutes online. They will need your valid passport to hand.

We’re busier than usual at the moment, so it may take a little longer to process your application. No need to contact us, though – we’ll be in touch.

Parents and guardians: please make sure your contact details are up-to-date in online banking.

If your parent/guardian isn't a personal HSBC customer

You can apply for MyMoney in-branch. If you're under 16, your parent or guardian must be with you to sign the application.

We’re using our branches to support customers who need us the most during the COVID-19 outbreak. So please only visit a branch if you have a financial need that can’t wait.
