Why choose a pension for a child?

You could give a child a fantastic head start by providing for their future. Start investing for a child’s retirement with our straightforward Stakeholder Pension. They’ll hopefully thank you later.

As their retirement is such a long way off, the payments you make will have great potential for growth.

  • Reduce the burden - you could help your child or grandchild reduce the amount of their future salary they need to pay into a pension
  • Give a head start - when the child reaches 16 they can take control of the plan and also make payments but won’t have access to their money until the age of 55
  • Save from just £16 a month with basic rate tax relief on top - increase payments, take a break or move into different funds whenever you want

 Important note

Laws and tax rules may change in the future. The information here is based on our understanding in May 2014. The child's circumstances also have an impact on tax treatment.

As with any investment, the value of the fund can go up or down and may be worth less than what was paid in.
