I opened a Nationeide junior ISA years ago for my son and contributed to it for years until we left to live in Canada. He became 18 a few weeks ago and we have been told he cannot access the money without a NI number which he does not have because he did not get issued one at 16. We tried when he was 16 to get a NI number but it seems you have to be a UK resident. He has a Canadian SIN number equivalent to NI and he has just moved to the Netherlands for Uni where he will get a BSN. We have spent hours on the phone to Nationwide who have no policy in place for kids in this situation. Would appreciate any help on what we can do. This money is for his University fees which we cannot access!
