Can I deposit a cheque by post?

Absolutely. We accept cheque payments into Child Trust Funds and Junior ISAs.

Please make the cheque payable to etiher the child's name or 'Family Equity Plan'.

On the back of the cheque, please write:

  • Your own name
  • Your address
  • The child's name
  • The child's date of birth
  • The account number


There's no need to use a stamp as we'll cover the postage but make sure you put it in an envelope to keep it safe. Please note that we can't accept a cheque paid into a child's account within 14 days of their 18th birthday.
