Please note that the last day for receipt of new Fixed Rate Cash ISA applications which we are able to guarantee opening for the 2016-2017 tax year is 31st March 2017.

Hodge Bank offers a variable rate Junior Cash ISA (JISA) with a minimum opening balance of £500. Additional deposits can be made each tax year up to the Junior Cash ISA allowance. The annual limit for the 2016/2017 tax year with effect from 6th April 2016 is £4,080. Up to £4,080 of the Junior ISA allowance can be saved in a Junior ISA with one provider.

No withdrawals can be made until the child reaches 18. However, the account can be transferred to another Junior Cash ISA manager subject to 90 days notice of the transfer.

Transfers of existing Junior Cash ISAs are accepted to our current variable rate offering, though these should be sent directly to us by bank to bank payment so as to ensure your tax free status is not affected. You should check with your existing provider to see if there are any charges or notice periods should you decide to transfer to us.
