Children born between 1st September 2002 and 2nd January 2011 were issued with a Child Trust Fund (CTF) voucher from the Government. Vouchers are no longer issued, but if you already have a Child Trust Fund you can still contribute to it.
From 10th April 2020, unless other arrangements have been made the Halifax Child Trust Fund will move to a new provider, Forester Life Limited. We will stop managing your plan once it moves to the new provider.
If you have a Child Trust Fund we’ll write to you during February 2020 with more details as well as your options. Since 28th February 2020, we no longer accept transfer in requests. If you want to make any additional payments or transfer out please contact us by 3rd April 2020.
You can also find more information about the change of CTF provider at www.scottishwidows.co.uk/ctf
