Don’t bank on opening a newborn’s account
AN elderly friend decided not to give a present to her new grandchild, instead opted to open a bank account for the baby.
However, it wasn’t as easy as the dear lady thought it would be.
At her local bank, she told the teller she wanted to open a bank account for her new grandchild. The teller then asked if she had the child’s birth certificate and passport. Dumbfounded, my friend repeated that the child was a newborn baby.
It was not possible to open the bank account. What has happened to the days when children had a moneybox that you could get from a bank?
When the moneybox was full, children took it to the bank and opened their first bank account. Frank Granger,
