* The KBC Brussels Savings Account for Third Parties is a ‘category A’ savings account: a traditional savings account without any additional conditions.

What is our kids account?

When you ask us for a kids account, you open a KBC Brussels Savings Account for Third Parties – even before baby is born. It lets you start saving for your unborn baby’s future today. You choose how much money you save and from what age the savings will be available to your child.

Other family members and friends may also like to contribute, so you might want to put the account number on your birth announcement card. That makes it easier for anyone wanting to transfer you money as a gift for your new bundle of joy.

Why go for a kids account?

1. Ideal as a gift account on your birth announcement card

If it isn’t your first child, chances are you’ll have trouble filling a baby wish list. Our kids account is a good alternative. Include the account number on your birth announcement card so your family and friends can help get your child off to a flying start.

2. Choose how much and how often you want to save

Want to set aside a larger one-off amount? Prefer to save by standing order? Rather deposit some money every now and then, like at Christmas or on your child’s birthday? The choice is yours. Our kids account is a very flexible way to save, as you decide how much to save and when.

More about our kids account

Who can open one of our kids accounts?

Expecting parents can open this account for their unborn baby using our KBC Brussels Touch or KBC Brussels Mobile app. Just open a new savings account and select ‘My unborn baby’ as the person you want to save for.

Haven’t chosen a name for your baby yet? No problem. You can still open a kids account – even if you’re not yet sure what to call your child. Alternatively, just open your KBC Brussels Savings Account for Third Parties after baby is born.

There are two ways to release the savings:

  • Set a date for your child to receive the money.
  • Specify that your child only gets the funds when buying or building their own home Savings are automatically released on your child’s 30th birthday.

What happens after your baby is born?

The savings account stays in your name once your little bundle of joy arrives, but you can register your baby as a beneficiary.

What are the KBC Brussels Savings Account for Third Parties earnings?

Current rates

Base rate of interest 0,45%
Fidelity bonus 0.45%

The rates shown are gross and annualised and can change at any time. Current rates are always shown above or can be obtained from your KBC Brussels branch. If the rates change, we will inform you by post or through one of our digital channels.

Savings start earning interest at the base rate on the first calendar day after the transaction date and cease to earn interest from the calendar day on which they are withdrawn. This interest is paid into your account once a year (with a value date of 1 January) or when you close your account

.You receive the fidelity bonus for amounts that remain on the savings account for 12 consecutive full months called the ‘calculation period’. When funds are withdrawn, the accruing fidelity bonuses whose acquisition date is furthest in the future will be the first to be used. 

For the first three transfers of funds per year to another regulated savings account at KBC Brussels, however, the fidelity bonus will be transferred proportionally if the following conditions are met:

  • Both savings accounts have at least one common account holder
  • The amount transferred is at least 500 euros
  • The funds are not transferred by standing order or automatic savings order

This means that the current 12-month calculation period is not ended, but continues instead on the savings account receiving the funds. In this case, too, the fidelity bonus is only awarded for amounts that remain on the relevant savings accounts for 12 consecutive months.

Every time a fidelity bonus is acquired, a new 12-month calculation period will start. The fidelity bonus rate is the interest rate prevailing on the first day of a new calculation period. That rate is fixed and remains unchanged for the entire 12-month calculation period, except when the fidelity bonus is transferred proportionally. In that case, the fidelity bonus for the remaining period is the interest rate prevailing on the day the funds go into the receiving savings account.

The fidelity bonus will be paid into your account on 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October after being acquired in the preceding quarter. Any fidelity bonus acquired will also be paid when you close your account.
