    Kids savings 9th Apr 18 at 9:24 PM
    Hi, we have 4 kids accounts with our local credit union but they have had no interest on them in 7 years. Should I take the money out and open savings accounts instead or ISA's? Which ones would be best given that 2 of my kids received the child trust fund when they were born.

    Thanks for any help

    It is possible to transfer CTF to JISA.

    you may transfer in junior ISA savings or Child Trust Fund savings held with another provider
