    Best current and savings accounts for just turning 18 year old 15th Jul 17 at 10:51 PM
    Hi,
    Looking for recommendations please for a current and savings account for our daughter as she is about to turn 18 and her JISA will finish (she is lucky enough to have £20k in savings).

    Consider LISA?

    Unfortunately the TSB under 19 account has to be opened before their 18th birthday. Any others suggestions gratefully received! Thank you.

    Depends what her plans for the money are really, eg uni fees, flat deposit, or longer term investment.

    Without wishing to challenge your assumption, the tsb website suggest being 18 qualifies:
    "To open an Under 19s Account, you must be aged between 11 and 18"

    Which can be quite reasonably interpreted as 12-17.

    It needs to state whether these are inclusive or even "between the 11th and 18th birthdays" which , to me, would include the 18th birthday but not the day after.
