Paying into a Child Trust Fund Account

Anyone can pay into a Child Trust Fund. By adding to the account, friends and family can be part of a gift that could contribute to their future. It’s important to remember that any money paid into the account is a gift to the child and cannot be returned to the payer.

You can stop, start or change your payments at any time. Payments must remain within the Government’s annual CTF allowance. You can find this on our website: kingstonunity.co.uk
