  • Your unique ID number. This is the code which is provided in the letter you’ll have received from Foresters confirming your Child Trust Fund value and maturity date. If you do not have your code please call us on 0800 988 2418
  • Your National Insurance number and contact details – telephone number and email address
  • Your bank account details – we’ll need these if you would like any of the Child Trust Fund paid out to you
  • Proof of identity – to keep your money safe, we need to check your identity. You have two options for this, verify your identity quickly with YOTI, or send us copies of your documents. To make the process easier, you may wish to set up your digital identification account now.  The free YOTI app combines your facial features and ID document to create your unique digital identity.  Simply download the YOTI app from the App Store or Play Store and set up your account.  The process will then be far simpler when you complete your online form.  Alternatively, if you are unable to use YOTI, you can upload photos of identity documents from the list below.
