Junior Bonds FAQs

A Junior Bond is a type of tax-exempt savings plan that allows you to invest on behalf of a child. You can open one for any child under 16, even if you're not related to them.

You choose how long the money stays invested for when you open the bond between 10 and 25 years which gives you control over how old the child must be before they get the money.
