  • Anyone can pay money into the Junior ISA account once it has been opened
  • The savings limit for a Junior ISA is £9,000 for the 2020/21 tax year
  • Your child can have 1 cash Junior ISA and 1 investment (or stocks and shares) Junior ISA
  • Children aged between 16 and 17 can open their own Junior ISA in addition to an adult cash ISA
  • Money in a Junior ISA belongs to the child and can’t be withdrawn from the account until they’re 18 at which point it automatically converts into an adult ISA
  • You can transfer a Child Trust Fund into a Junior ISA
