Opening banking services for your child
Opening a disposal account or a PerkAccount for your child is easy – you can do this in the “Open services online for a child” service on our website. You can also order a debit card and open online banking services for your child when they are old enough to use them independently.
To open banking services, you need to have a valid identity document. If you are applying for a debit card or concluding a Netbank agreement for your child, they must also have an identity document accepted by Nordea.
When you fill in the online application for opening an account for your child, we will send your child’s other guardian an SMS requesting them to approve the application. You can open services online for your child once they have been given a name.
When you open services for your child, we will update the customer information we have on both guardians and your child. Both guardians decide on an underage child’s banking together. To make changes to your child’s banking services, you generally need the consent of both guardians. You can make these changes by contacting Nordea Customer Service and authenticating your identity with your online banking codes.
You can also open accounts and other banking services for your child by calling Nordea Customer Service, tel 0200 70 000, Mon–Fri 8.00–18.00.
Opening services is also possible in branch if you have a power of attorney from the other guardian. When you want to apply for a card or conclude a Netbank agreement for your child, you will need to bring them with you to visit our branch.
