    • Based on the current interest rate, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,025.

Can I withdraw money?
    • Withdrawals are not allowed before the child’s 18th birthday, all amounts invested together with all interest accrued must remain in the JISA.
    • A passbook must be presented when a withdrawal is requested at maturity, at which point the Society may request documents to verify the child’s identity.
Additional Information
    • Tax-free.
    • Before the child’s 18th birthday we will write to the registered contact with details of the options available.  If no instructions are received at that time, the JISA will be transferred to a holding account, which is also tax free under current legislation, but may not be the same interest rate.
    • *Gross means the annual rate of interest before any deduction of income tax. This account is tax free. AER illustrates what the interest rate would be if it were paid and added each year.

Terms and Conditions

Before opening this account please read our General Terms and Conditions.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).  The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a building society is unable to meet its financial obligations.  It’s important that you read the FSCS Information Sheet. It provides basic information about the protection of your savings deposits.

Opening an account is easy and you can do that in any of our branches or by post.

Simply download, print and complete the application form.  Then return your completed form, necessary identification and opening cheque to your preferred branch or post it to Loughborough Building Society, 6 High Street, Loughborough LE11 2QB.

The person who opens the account is the Registered Contact. If the child is under 16, the account must be opened by a person who has parental responsibility for the child (as shown on the birth certificate). When opening an account for a child who is under 16 you will need the child’s birth certificate. We will also need identification for the adult.

Cheques must be payable to the account holder.

For postal applications we will accept photocopy identification documents as long as they are certified by an appropriate person such as a solicitor, accountant, bank or building society official or other financial services approved person and we are provided with sufficient information to be able to contact that person.

You should read all the product information to ensure this account is right for you and also the Financial Services Compensation Scheme Information Sheet and our General Terms and Conditions.
