You’ll soon be 25! Time for an account that fits you

You currently have a KBC Plus Account. It’s free of charge for under-25s, but reaching that magic quarter-century milestone means you’ll start paying a nominal charge of 2.5 euros a month for your account (3.25 euros a month starting on 1 April). In return, you enjoy many great benefits that you don’t get with our KBC Basic Account and for which you’ll soon pay a little extra.

Compare our current accounts to see the one that fits your life now. If you’re already sold on the KBC Plus Account, you don’t have to do anything.

You can cancel your KBC product or service before the changes take effect, without having to pay a cancellation fee. If we don't hear from you before then, we will assume that you agree with the changes.

The guaranteed rate of interest applying to your KBC Hospitalisation Plan is set to change for deposits made on or after 1 February 2021

As of 1 February 2021, the interest rate will be adjusted from 1% to 0.75% and that rate will be guaranteed until 1 February 2046.
The new interest rate only applies to new deposits that we receive on or after 1 February 2021. The interest rate on amounts you saved before then will continue to apply.

Your teenager is almost 18 and they’ll soon be able to manage their own banking business

Your teenager still needs to take care of some mandatory financial paperwork, but we'd be happy to help them with the task at hand. They have 180 days from the day they turn 18 to sort everything out. This can be done in just a few taps on the KBC Mobile app or at a branch in your area. Find out everything you need to know.

If your teenage son or daughter intends to manage their own account once they’re 18, you can discuss the possibility of being granted a power of attorney. See how that can be arranged.
