Our Children's Savings Account

Opening a children's savings account is a great first step for children to learn how to be responsible with money.

Our First Saver account is a free instant access savings account available to children under 16. Accounts can be opened on behalf of a child or in their own name if aged over 7 (and with consent of a parent or guardian). If the account is held by an adult in trust for a child, the child will become entitled to the funds when they reach age 16 if your address is in Scotland, or 18 if your address is elsewhere. 

First Saver benefits:

  • Start saving from as little as £1
  • Get a free Pigbybank
  • Access to Pigby's Savings Zone featuring fun savings tips and tricks
  • Adults can access funds in branch, by telephone, and online. Children will only be able to withdraw in branch
