Opening and managing an account
Would you like to teach your child to save money while retaining some control over their savings account? If so, these accounts are right for you. With the ING Orange Savings Account, your child cannot access their savings before they turn 18, except with your authorisation. With the ING Green Savings Account, your child may access their savings under your control.
There is no fee to open and manage these savings accounts. Transfers are free of charge too. You carry them out yourself online or on your smartphone or tablet. Do you have an ING Current Account linked to your savings account? If so, you can also carry out your transfers at a Self'Bank terminal.
Do you hold one of these savings accounts and would like to close it? Here is how you close a savings account online.
You have access to the capital up until your child’s 18th birthday
You have access to your money until your child turns 18. Transfer it to your current account – it's that simple! On your child’s 18th birthday, the young person’s savings account becomes the full property of your son or daughter and you no longer have guardianship of it.
Your child’s money is secure
These two accounts are regulated savings accounts governed by Belgian law, and the law does not allow negative interest to be charged to this account. Therefore, ING will not do this.
What would happen if ING went bankrupt?
Your savings are protected up to 100,000 euros by the deposit guarantee scheme. The remainder is not covered. The capital of the amount of receivables held at the financial institution may be lost or reduced/converted to shares (bail-in).
