Changes to First Saver Account Terms

To make it easier for you to understand your First Saver account, we’ve simplified the wording in our Terms. These are the rules as to how your account works. These changes will take effect from 25 November 2019.

The updated Terms can be reviewed below, however we’ve highlighted the key changes here:

  • If the account is held in the name of a child, the money in the account is owned by the child (this is only an option when the child is over 7)
  • If the account is in the name of the adult on behalf of the child, the money in the account is owned by the adult

There are no other changes to the account. If you have any questions, please speak to your usual point of contact.
