We mislaid the form then just forgot to do anything about it when it turned up. It has now expired so I'm waiting on word of the one the government open on your behalf. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this & how long it tok for them to notify you the account details?
ruty you should have had a certificate sent you in the post soon after she was born - if you didnt i think you can get another, or just wait for the govt to open one for you. You also have to apply for CB for all your children lol so you should be due a nice backpayment!
In this current market you may well have saved your DS/DD some money by not opening an account. I deliberately took the view of leaving DS2's until nearer the deadline as shares prices were falling. Unfortunately left it slightly too long and the gov opened an account for him . Never mind! I haven't put any futher money into either of DS's accounts either for the same reason - the cash at the Bank is worth more!!
Government opened all 3 of mine too. I forgot with my first then thought I may as well let the govt. open one for the other two as wellbecause -i'm-- alazycow so I don't get accused of favouritism in the future. You can move them I think and I will do when the climate is better.
