It's quick and easy to pay in to a child's account!

Choose from the options below in order to pay in to an account. Please remember that money paid into a Junior ISA or a Child Trust Fund will remain there until the child is 18, when only they will be able to access it. If you are investing in a stocks and shares Junior ISA or a stakeholder Child Trust Fund, do note that the value of the account could fall as well as rise, and the child could receive back less than was paid in.

Pay in to a Junior ISA

You can pay in to a Junior ISA by monthly Direct Debit or make one-off Debit Card payments up to a total of £4,000 this tax year (6th of April to the following 5th April). All you need is the child's account number and date of birth. This limit will be reduced if payments are being made into a cash Junior ISA.

Pay in by cheque

Send a cheque made payable to Family Equity Plan Ltd (or made payable to the child) to:

FREEPOST, RTHA-EHYB-ZTBL
Family Investments
16-18 West Street
Brighton
BN1 2RL

On the reverse of the cheque, please write the child’s name, date of birth, account number and your name and address.



Pay in by Telephone/Internet Banking

You'll need the following information to do this.

 Type of account Sort Code   Account number
 Stakeholder Child Trust Fund 60-00-01 36238007
 Cash Child Trust Fund 60-00-01  39495876

Please use the child's account number as a reference. The format should be C00012345K, K00012345B or J00012345A.

Important: if you provide an incorrect reference, for example the wrong account number, the payment will be rejected or could be applied to an incorrect account. It may also mean that we are unable to return any money that has been paid in.



Unfortunately, we do not accept cheques or cash paid over the counter at a bank, building society or Post Office.

Please remember that if the end of the account year is approaching (this is from the child's birthday for CTF accounts, and the tax year for Junior ISAs) and you wish to take full advantage of their current year’s allowance, you should take extra care to ensure that your payment reaches us in time.

We cannot accept payments from overseas bank accounts. If you are living overseas and do not have a UK bank account, please call our international customer service number.

Invite family & friends to pay in

If you are the Registered Contact you can email family and friends an invite to pay in to your child's account online by Direct Debit or Debit Card.

All you have to do is choose which email you want to send, enter the addresses you want to send it to, and we'll do the rest!
