My child has received cheques for their birthday. Can we pay these into their goHenry account? If so, how do we do this?

goHenry is a digital service and funds can only be added electronically to your goHenry account i.e. by bank transfer or debit card payment. The easiest way for a relative to be able to gift money to your children is to invite them as a relative to your account. They can then make payments directly using their debit card and add a personal message that will appear on your child’s goHenry statement.

If you have already been given the cheques and they are made out to your child, they will need to either be paid into a bank account in the child’s name OR you can request that the payer writes a new cheque out to you which you can then pay it into your own bank account. The funds can then be moved to your parent account with goHenry and transferred to your child’s account using the quick transfer button.
