Before you start

You can only apply for this account online if you're a Nationwide member. Keep in mind, the child doesn't need to be a Nationwide member, just you.

If you're not a member, you can still open this account. You'll have to call your local branch and arrange an appointment to do so over the phone. Find the phone number of your nearest branch.

This account needs to be opened by the child's parent or an adult with parental responsibility.


Before your account is opened, we may need to check ID documents for your child. We usually need to do this if your child does not have an account with us.

Once you've completed this application, we'll let you know by text and by post whether we need to see any ID documents.

If we do, you'll need to send them to us for approval. All the information on how to do this will be in your letter.

Your Future Saver account will not be opened until we've approved these ID documents.

Summary Financial Statement

When you open an account with us, we need to let you know about our most recent summary financial statement and auditors' report. Our summary financial statement is published in our Review of the Year document - PDF 5.9MB (opens in a new window).
