For savings guidance, please take a look at our FAQs.
ISA stands for Individual Savings Account. The main difference between an ISA and any other savings account is that it offers tax-free interest payments, so you could get more for your money. There is a limit to how much money you can put into an ISA in each tax year, which is called the ‘ISA allowance’.
To be eligible to subscribe to an ISA an investor must be an individual, aged 16 or over (if subscribing to a cash ISA), or 18 or over (if subscribing to a stocks and shares, innovative finance ISA, or a Lifetime ISA).
You need to be aged 18 or over and a resident in the United Kingdom to open a savings account with us. You can open a joint account with one other person.

To help to prevent unauthorised access to your online account it is critical that you do not share your password or memorable word with anyone and we advise you not to write it down.
If you know or suspect that someone knows your password and/or memorable word you should tell us immediately and we will suspend your online account to prevent unauthorised access. We may do this without giving you prior notice if we suspect someone knows your password or if we see any unusual activity on your account. If we do suspend your online account we will re-register you to allow you to continue to securely use your account.
