Children need no lessons in how to spend money, but with a Young Saver account they can learn how to save it too.
Earn a variable rate of 1.25% AER from £1, and 0.30% AER (variable) on any funds over £20,000.
Please note from 10 September 2019 the interest rate for any funds over £20,000 will be 0.15% AER / 0.14% Gross variable
You'll maintain full control of the child's account until they turn 16.
Before the child's 16th birthday we'll write to you reminding you that the account will convert into an Easy Saver with bonus solely in the child's name. If you would prefer the money to be paid into a different account either for your child to manage themselves or for you to manage on their behalf, we'll let you know how to do this.
You, as the adult, must have a TSB current account in order to open a Young Saver.
One Young Saver account per child.
Instant access through your local TSB branch.

Interest is paid gross (without taking off tax)
If the child earns more interest than the Personal Savings Allowance, additional tax may be due.
The Personal Savings Allowance is £1,000 for basic rate taxpayers. Additional rate taxpayers don't recieve a Personal Savings Allowance.
Within 10 days of the child turning 16, the Young Saver will be converted into an Easy Saver account. We'll write to the adult at least 2 months before this to provide the details. Rates and information correct as at 01/09/2018.
Account can be closed at any time without charge.
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.
Gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax.
Your eligible deposits with TSB are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme.
Your deposits with us are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.
In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the bank including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.
For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the
FSCS website or call the FSCS on 020 77 414 100 or 08006 781 100 . Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.
Accounts with TSB Bank plc include accounts in all its divisions and under trading name TSB and TSB Business. An eligible depositor's £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all accounts with TSB Bank plc.
