Henri Moneyboxes are suitable for children aged 3+ and are limited to one per every new account-holder based in Northern Ireland.

The need to knows

Children over 12 years can open the account themselves. If under 12, a relative or friend over 18 can open the account and only a parent or guardian will have access to the money. We need proof of ID and address for you and the child you're opening the account for.ID for the child can be a passport, birth certificate or medical card. Proof of address for a parent or guardian can be used as proof for the child provided surname and address are the same.

Simply book an appointment at your nearest branch. Bring along the required documentation and your account will be opened.
