Key product information
How it works
Open an account with just £10. Anyone aged 7 to 17 can open an account, although if you're under 16 you'll need your parent/guardian with you.
MySavings / Premier MySavings comes with a free money box on account opening and a free sticker activity book to help 7 to 10 years understand money. If you are under 11 and want to take out over £50 (or move it to another account) you'll need your parent or guardian's permission, and their signature.
On your 11th birthday, we'll also open one of the following current accounts for you, which together with your savings account, form a package called MyMoney:
- If you have a MySavings account, we will open you a MyAccount.
- If you have a Premier MySavings account, we will open you a Premier MyAccount
When you reach the age of 18, we will transfer your MyAccount or Premier MyAccount to our Bank Account. We will also transfer your MySavings account to a Flexible Saver, or if you have a Premier MySavings, we will transfer it to a Premier Family Savings account.
(We may transfer your account to an equivalent account in any of the cases above, if any of the above are no longer on sale when you reach 18, or if we consider that another one of our accounts would be more beneficial to you).
