  • Money in a child’s account is the sole property of the child and no other person (including the parent/guardian or person who originally opened the account) is entitled to use this money for his/her benefit.
  • Guardians will be signing to verify all withdrawals for minor a/cs below the age of 7 to outline all withdrawals are for the sole benefit of the minor.
  • Between the age of 7 and 15 a minor needs to sign the account opening form but can be accompanied by a guardian. The minor must sign for all withdrawals on the account and operate the account.
  • From 16 a minor can open and operate their own account in full and can have full internet access if they so wish.
  • Any person can lodge to a Minor account, regardless of the age of the minor, but they will not receive a balanced receipt unless the minor is aged under 7. Instead a receipt displaying the amount lodged is provided.
  • No loans can be issued until a minor reaches 18 in accordance with contract law.
