What is our kids account?

Kids account

When you ask us for a kids account, you open one of our KBC Tall Oaks Savings Account – even before baby is born. It lets you start saving for your unborn baby’s future today. You choose how much money you save and from what age the savings will be available to your child.

Other family members and friends may also like to contribute, so you might want to put the account number on your birth announcement card. That makes it easier for anyone wanting to transfer you money as a gift for your new bundle of joy.

Who can open one of our kids accounts?

Future parents can open a savings account for their unborn baby using our KBC Mobile or KBC Touch app.

Haven’t chosen a name for your baby yet? No worries. You can still open the account, even if you haven’t decided on your baby’s name yet. Alternatively, just open your  KBC Tall Oaks Savings Account after baby is born.

Why go for a kids account?

1. Ideal as a gift account on your birth announcement card

If it isn’t your first child, chances are you’ll have trouble filling a baby wish list. Our kids account is a good alternative. Include the account number on your birth announcement card so your family and friends can help get your child off to a flying start.

2. Choose how much and how often you want to save

Want to set aside a larger one-off amount? Prefer to save by standing order? Rather deposit some money every now and then, like at Christmas or on your child’s birthday? The choice is yours. Our kids account is a very flexible way to save, as you decide how much to save and when.
