Our Learner Earner account can only be opened in branch or agency. We’ve set it up this way because it’s designed to help children learn why they should save, through fun activity packs, a story book and stickers, a moneybox, and the experience of visiting their local branch regularly to deposit money.
- Due to the latest government guidance, from Monday 26th October to the 8th November, we will be unable to conduct any branch appointments for savings account openings in Wales.
