Who is eligible for a Junior ISA?
Any child resident in the UK who wasn't eligible for a Child Trust Fund (CTF):
- Children born on or after 3 January 2011
- Children (aged under 18) born on or before 31 August 2002
- Children born on or between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011 who didn't qualify for a Child Trust Fund. Note that most children born between these dates did qualify for a CTF.
Where a child has a CTF, this can now be transferred to a Junior ISA. Once the transfer of the CTF is complete further contributions can be made to the Junior ISA.
