Owning your account when you turn 16

As soon as you turn 16, you become responsible for your own NS&I account(s). The easiest way to manage them is to use our online service. Here’s how to register:

We’ll check your identity by asking you questions about your relationships with other banks and building societies, based on information held by a credit reference agency. If you can’t get through this check, don’t worry – you’ll be able to complete your registration by posting us a form instead. We might ask you to get a witness to sign the form, as well.

To find out more about managing your specific account(s), have a look below.
