    I've just been offered a job and I need to set up a bank account for my wages. However I'm not 16 for another month. Can I open an account now? If not, can I open one in my dad's name and use that for my wages to be sent into?

    You should be able to use your own card (I suggest setting up a Natwest account) but if you can't then you can definitely put in your dad's name and transfer it into your own account.

    ^ I agree with above. Get a Natwest Adapt account. You can get one of those from the age of 11. My 14 year old brother got one so I know it's possible.

    Get a Nationwide FlexOne (or FlexPlus or something, the junior one) as you can have it until you're 18 and you get 25%off at Vue for a year which you don't get with Natwest

    (I have a nationwide and it's great, TSB do a good one, too)

    Yes you can open your own account. You may need an adult with you to do so if you are underage but it depends on the bank and where you live
