Those born between September 1, 2002 and January 2, 2011 could have up to £1,000 in a Child Trust Fund from the Government.
Labour introduced the fund when it was last in power to give children £250 when they were born and a further £250 when they turned seven.
Low income families also received double payments from the Government, which means they could have £1,000 stashed away in their child’s name.
Even if parents have never opened a Child Trust Fund account, the Government would have done it on the child’s behalf and placed the money in.
