Anyone is able to open a Life Saver youth savings account on behalf of a child or grandchild. Right now, this process can only be completed in your nearest branch.

If you intend to act as a signatory on the account for the child, we’ll need you to bring along some forms of identification for yourself, such as your driver’s licence, as well as identification for the child. If the child is also going to be signing on the account, they will need to come along to the branch with you and be able to sign to accept the Terms and Conditions.

If you don’t intend to act as a signatory, we’ll just need you to identification for the child you intend to open an account for, such as their birth certificate or passport. The child will need to be with you to sign and get the account up and running.

If you don’t have a drivers licence or the child is unable to locate their birth certificate, we still may be able to help. Check out our FAQs for more identification options.
