Teenagers may be missing out on Child Trust Fund funds
Most children born between 01 September 2002 and 02 January 2011 had a Child Trust Fund set up for them either by their parents/guardians or by HM Revenue & Customs. The average value of each was £1,500 in 2020. These mature when the young person reaches the age of 18.
