Opening the account in a parent or guardian's name
(to save on behalf of a child under 18) 

It’s possible for an adult to open the Young Saver account if they are saving on behalf of a child under 18. The account will be opened solely in the adult’s name and the adult will remain the account owner. The account will be named after the child as an informal trust and the parent has the option to transfer the money into an account in the child’s name when the child turns 12. 
The child’s birth certificate will also need to be sighted to ensure the Young Saver is benefiting a child under 18. The child’s date of birth will be used for administration purposes only and the birth certificate will not be retained.
