What’s more, Tameside Council is offering a £10 voucher to start off your child’s savings account . Watch out for the letter that will be coming through your door
Once you get it:
Go with your child to a Cash Box Credit Union Branch
You must take the letter, and your child’s birth certificate or passport together with proof of your own identity such as a passport or driving licence
You can then either set up a new account for your child, and deposit the £10 voucher, or add the voucher to your child’s existing Cash Box account if they already have one.
You can also complete a standing order form to start regular payments to your child’s account if you wish.
