Junior ISAs are available to anyone under the age of 18 who is resident in the UK, but who isn’t eligible for a Child Trust Fund (CTF).
Only the child’s parent or legal guardian can apply for the Junior ISA, but anyone can pay money into the child’s ISA, up to a limit of £3,840 each tax year. Whoever applies for the Junior ISA will be named as the ‘registered contact’, responsible for managing the child’s ISA and making any investment decisions. Under normal circumstances, the child is the only person who can withdraw money from the Junior ISA, but only when they turn 18.
