Next steps for your Junior ISA

What happens at age 18?

When you turn 18 your Junior ISA will automatically move into an Adult Stocks and Shares ISA.
You then have the options to:

Add money to your ISA

Contribute to your ISA from as little as £20 for both monthly and single contributions.

Add a Lifetime ISA

Save for your first home or later life and gain a yearly Government bonus of up to £1,000.

Make withdrawals

As you can now access your savings you can make withdrawals at any time.

All current contributions into your Junior ISA will end on your 18th birthday. If you wish to make contributions into your Adult ISA please see ‘Add money to your ISA’, found below.

It’s easy to manage your ISA

With your online MyPlans account


✔ See how much is in your ISA ✔ Update your personal details ✔ View fund performance


You will need:

  • Your National Insurance number or Plan number
  • Your email address
  • A bank account in your name

You can find the Plan number on letters we have sent you (this can be your ISA or Junior ISA Plan number), or by calling Customer Services. A bank account is only needed when withdrawing or adding money.

Your ISA

An ISA is a tax-efficient way of saving for adults and their future. Each tax year, starting 6th April, you can save up to the ISA allowance set by the Government, currently £20,000. 


Your Foresters ISA is a Stocks and Shares ISA, just like your Stocks and Shares Junior ISA. Once your ISA is opened you can withdraw and add money as and when you can, from as little as £20. Parents can contribute to your ISA to help you save, and add single contributions which make for a great present on special occasions like birthdays and graduations.


Please note that as the Junior ISA rolls into an adult ISA on your 18th birthday the value may display as £0 on your MyPlans account -don't worry, this means we are processing the roll over into the Adult ISA.


Unlike other providers, we only have one simple annual management charge of 1.5% and we do not charge for anything else, like transfers or withdrawals.

Our ISA fund

Your ISA will continue to invest in the same fund(s) as your Junior ISA (unless you hold a Junior ISA – Options, this may change).  

All of our funds are professionally managed by Schroders, so you don’t have to worry about making investment decisions.  If you have a Stakeholder Junior ISA this will then become a Stakeholder ISA and you continue to have the choice of investing in two funds. If you hold a Shariah Junior ISA at age 18 your ISA will roll into an Adult Shariah ISA.

Want to save for your first home?

Once you reinvest in our ISA you have the option to open a Lifetime ISA, perfect for if you’re looking to save for your first home.
With an additional 25% Government bonus on your savings. What is a Lifetime ISA?

Why saving is important

It is easier to save when you have a pot of money already, no matter how big or small it is. Your savings could help you save for your future goals, whether that’s a new car, your first home or even travelling the world. Whatever your goals are, with an ISA, you have the option to withdraw at any time.

40% of 22-29 have no savings at all, so why not start early to give yourself financial security and to make the most of your future.

The average age of a first-time buyer in the UK is 34 years old. This is 6 years older than the average age of a first-time buyer in 2007, which was 28 years old. So if you’re looking to buy your first home, you’ll need an average deposit of £46,200 (based on first-time buyers in 2019). The Lifetime ISA benefits from government contributions which could give you a boost when saving for your first home (LISA rules apply).
