How to Open a COL Account for Minors

A COL Account for Minors (below 18 years old) is called an In-Trust-For Account (ITF).  This is specifically intended for a parent who wants his/her minor child to be the beneficiary of the account.

The procedure for opening an ITF Account is basically the same as the standard application (you can follow the steps in 'How to Open a COL Account').  

The difference would be the following:

1.  In filling out the form, the parent would be the Primary Account Holder and the minor would be the Secondary Account Holder.  In the signature portion, the Primary signs on the first  line and the name of the minor should be written on the second line.

2.  An ITF (In-Trust-For) Supplementary Agreement must be accomplished as part of the application form.

3.  Photocopy of the following should be submitted together with the application form.  

     For Principal
     1.  Any government ID
     2.  Billing Statement (for non-appearance)

     For Minors:
     1.  Birth Certificate


The Primary Account Holder needs to be the biological parent of the minor.  Otherwise, adoption or court papers showing appointment as the minor's guardian have to be presented.

Once the beneficiary reaches the age of majority, the Primary Account Holder may convert the account into either:
1.  a  Joint Account with the beneficiary; or
2.  an Individual Account under the beneficiary's name.

Thanks & God bless,

  1. in the customer bank account details, does the minor need to have an ITF bank account as well to be put in the form? or ok lang ba na bank acct detail lng ng primary holder ang ilalagay?

    1. Hi. No, you or the minor don't have to have bank acct. And even if you have, you may choose not to write it down on the form.

  2. Hi! Greetings! I have a few questions..

    1. Do I have to fill out the CUSTOMER BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS in the CAIF???
