FAQs about the young person’s account

A young person’s account, or Young Person’s Growth Account, is a current account for children aged 0 to 17. As a parent, you decide what your child can and cannot do with the account. For example, you can set the limit for your child’s debit card, switch internet banking on or off and set a maximum amount for online payments.

ABN AMRO’s young person’s account (Young Person’s Growth Account) is available for children aged 0 to 17.

Applying for a young person’s account is quick and easy. First you apply for your child’s free account either online or during an appointment at one of our branches. Then you sign the Internet Banking Agreement for your child. After signing the agreement you will have access to the young person’s account within 5 working days.

Your child’s account number will be added in the ABN AMRO app or Internet Banking within 5 working days after you applied for the account. The account will not be immediately visible in your overview. You can arrange this yourself. Find out here how to add the account.
