As the only military specialist on the Government approved list of distributors NAAFI Financial provide Forces families at home and abroad with easy access to Child Trust Fund accounts through their partnership with UK Armed Forces Benefit Society. They are the only distributor able to offer this service in Germany. In welcoming his guests Al Voice, Managing Director of NAAFI Financial, said; âFamilies are the lynchpin of our serving men and women, and we are proud to help in any way that ensures their future financial security. By making access to the Child Trust Fund easier for those in the Forces, wherever they may be in the world, we are doing just that.â âEven though the Child Trust Funds wonât be open until April 2005 we have already received over 200 registration applications from our customers in the last two weeks. Itâs the sort of start in life that every youngster will be grateful for when the time comes, and makes it easy for friends and family to contribute regularly to their special fund.â A Child Trust Fund is a savings account available to all children born on or after September 1, 2002. The Government will issue each of these children with a voucher worth at least Â£250, or up to Â£500 for lower income families, to invest in a Child Trust Fund. Many parents have already received their vouchers and the Government intends to have distributed them all by the end of February. Parents, friends and family will be able to top up the fund by up to Â£1,200 per year, and the growth on the money will be tax-free. UK Armed Forces Benefit Society is part of one of the countryâs leading friendly societies, which has a wealth of experience providing savings for children, helping NAAFI Financial to offer simple and affordable savings plans for all the family.
