If you are under 16 or would prefer to go into a branch to open your account, you will need to complete an AIB Student Account Application Form and if you are under 16 years of age this must be signed by a Parent/ Guardian. The Parent/ Guardian of the student must call into their local AIB branch, confirming their request for an AIB Debit Card on the account if the student is under 16 years of age. The Parent/ Guardian must be aware that they have no authority to amend the card details except for cancelling the card (if the student is under 16 years). The card must be cancelled at the branch or written instruction to the branch.
The customer must be the beneficial owner of all funds lodged to the AIB Student Account.
