Which junior cash ISAs pay the highest rate of interest?
If you want the best junior cash ISA for your child, which accounts are worth looking at?
Junior ISAs were launched in November 2011 - the government's replacement for the child trust fund, which was abolished in January the same year. They work in a similar way to 'adult' cash ISAs, which means that interest is paid tax free. However, unlike an adult cash ISA, you have to leave money in the junior ISA until your child is 18 (although they can transfer it between providers). Which pay the best rates?

Having a baby; how much you'll get in maternity pay and how you can prepare.
According to the research by USwitch, mums are getting into debt – either borrowing from friends and family or taking out credit cards and loans – when they’re on maternity leave.

What is child benefit? How much do you get if you claim child benefit?

If you have children or you look after a child, you can claim child benefit. The amount you get depends on how many children you have. It's not means-tested, but if you or your partner earns more than £50,000 a year, you or he/she will have to pay tax on it.
