Yesterday (18 September), HM Revenue and Customs reminded 18–21-year-olds to claim their Child Trust Fund cash as part of UK Savings Week (18 to 24 September).

Child Trust Funds are long-term, tax-free savings accounts and were set up for every child born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011, with the government contributing an initial deposit of at least £250. Funds can be withdrawn once the account matures when the child turns 18.

Young adults and parents can search on GOV.​UK to find out where their Child Trust Fund account is held.
More information on Child Trust Funds and how to access the money can be found on GOV.​UK.
