Can under 16's take out a cash ISA?

Sadly not, 16 is the minimum age for cash ISAs as they require an NI number, and it's 18 for investments due to contract and credit laws considering under 18s to be minors and unable to enter financial contracts.

However, under 16s may be eligible for a child ISA.
