Eligibility to the Child Trust Fund is not subject to a claim. Where parents do not use the Government voucher to open an account themselves, HMRC opens an account for the child instead. All UK resident children in a Child Benefit award, who are born on or after 1 September 2002 and who are not subject to immigration control, will have a Child Trust Fund.
