Here you can find some key information to help you get set up with Offspring
Creating an Offspring profile
Once you have begun the process of creating an Offspring profile, you will go through a few simple steps:
- Set up a profile for yourself
- Provide the details of your bank or building society account
- Tell us what you’re saving for
- Invite family and friends
Linking a savings account
The process of adding a bank or building society account to Offspring is easy. You will be prompted to provide the sort code and account number, and that’s it.
If you have an account with a building society, we’ll also ask you for the reference or roll number as well.
Linking building society accounts
Identifying the roll number for your building society account can sometimes be tricky. Below are details of how to locate the roll number for a range of different account providers.
Sort code: 07 00 93
Account number: 33333334
Roll/reference number: Your full account number – for example 1234/123456789
When creating an Offspring profile using a Nationwide account, enter the full roll number into the reference field.
Sort code: 60 – 92 – 04
