How does it work?

gohenry is a bank account re-imagined for young people. There is an online account for you, the parent and a linked account for each of your children, all managed through either the gohenry website or our mobile app. Your child’s account will help them understand earning, saving and spending, and in the process help them learn great money habits. Each child receives their own gohenry card. Don’t worry, this is not a credit or a normal debit card, it is a Pre-Paid Visa Debit Card with rules and limits set by you.

Your children can only spend the money available on their card and there is no danger of debt or overdraft. For parents we offer a really simple and easy way to manage your children’s pocket money and allowances online – whether you want to set a weekly allowance, make a quick transfer to your child or set tasks for them to earn their money, gohenry has you covered.

Set the rules, set the limits and then just sit back and relax as the weekly allowances you have set are taken care of. Plus, you can keep an eye on what your children are saving for and notifications let you know where they are spending. Invite your relatives to gift into your children’s account too, to make Birthdays and Christmas a whole lot simpler.
