Smart Junior ISA
Wherever they're heading, save for their future ...
Print or email this page:
Our cash Smart Junior ISA is designed to help give children a helping hand when they reach 18 by building up tax-free savings they can then use for whatever they are dreaming of, whether it's going to university or a deposit for their first house.
Junior ISAs offer a tax-free way to start saving for a child’s future. They encourage both parents and children to save, and the money is not available to the child until their 18th birthday.
Our support pages have information on interest rates, terms and conditions and FAQs.
Effective from 26 February 2014
Rates are variable.
Maximum of one account holder, minimum age 0
The child must be under 18 and a UK resident
You can only have one Junior ISA or Child Trust Fund account at any one time with Nationwide or another provider. If you already have one of these, you'll need to request a transfer pack to open and move your existing Junior ISA or Child Trust Fund account.
A parent or legal guardian can open the ISA on behalf of the child, or if the child is aged 16 or 17 they can open the Smart Junior ISA themselves
