Confirming your Identity - What is Yoti?

The quickest and easiest way to access your CTF will be with Yoti. It will be used to prove your identity electronically.

The reason?

We wanted to make it as fast and simple as possible for you to securely access your account.

Yoti allows you to digitally upload your identification (e.g. take a photo of it) and use your phone to identify yourself. It uses 256-bit encryption for data security and allows you to choose which parts of your identity you want to share.

It’s already being used to check identification in nightclubs and supermarkets, and once you’ve registered you can use Yoti to verify your age or identity in many different places.

You can find out more about Yoti’s credentials, including how they are regulated and which organisations work with them here.

We're currently upgrading the mobile experience for Child Trust Fund customers. If you're 18 and are ready to tell us what you want to do with your money, we recommend you complete this on a laptop or desktop.

Get the Yoti app now

Download the Yoti app on iTunes or Google Play now so you’re ready to access your Child Trust Fund when it matures.
