Between now and your 18th birthday, you should have a think about what you want to do with the money invested when you turn 18. Your parents or guardians could play an important role in your decision-making process so it would be beneficial to discuss your options with them.
Whilst we can’t accept an instruction about the future of your investment until you are 18, there are a couple of things that you can do now.
Firstly, let us know how you’d prefer us to communicate with you. Up until now, we’ve mainly dealt with your parent or guardian but once you are 18, we’ll only communicate directly with you (unless you tell us otherwise). Complete and return the form below, which is designed for you to fill in so that we have your preferred contact details – it also allows you to provide details of anyone you’d like to help you with the account once you turn 18.
It’s important we have your correct contact details in order to update you with any actions you may need to take regardless of which option you decide to choose. We need to know where you live, especially if this is different to your parent’s address, as we’ll need you to provide proof of your address (there’s more information about that below).
