Frequently Asked Questions

What is StorkCard?

StorkCard is the best way to manage your money when you start raising a family. It is a debit card, joint account and planning tool that helps you prepare for the big costs ahead, save money on baby purchases and coordinate childcare costs more effectively.

Do I need to have a baby to apply for a StorkCard?

No, you don’t. Our baby planner tools are perfect for those who are pregnant, thinking of getting pregnant or are even just interested in what is involved.

Why did you create StorkCard?

Having kids is expensive (perhaps not the biggest surprise in the world), and we created StorkCard to help parents as they transition into this next stage of their lives. We want to give mums and dads the peace of mind they deserve, so they can focus on the joys of having children, rather than the costs. We are not a bunch of bankers with pinstripe suits and a mouthful of jargon. We have been through this ourselves and are building a product we wish we had when our kids were younger.

I already have one of those famously awesome “pink cards”, why should I get a StorkCard too?

Simply put, we do completely different things. We are not trying to replace your high street bank account. StorkCard is designed from the ground up to be the perfect tool to help ease the financial burden of having children. Our joint account helps you focus on and coordinate your spending related to the family.

How do I apply? How much does it cost?

It’s free to download and to use in the UK. Head to your app store and download our app. See you there!

Do I have to be resident in the UK?

In order to keep everyone’s money safe and protect against fraud and money laundering, you currently have to be a UK resident to be able to open a StorkCard.

Are we a bank?

No, We are an Electronic Money Institution and are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to hold your money and issue cards and run your joint account. Our FCA registration number is 900967.

Is my money safe with StorkCard?

Of course, all of your money (no limit) is protected at all times and is held securely in a segregated account at a UK regulated bank in accordance with the FCA requirements and the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 (not FSCS protected), which means that StorkCard has no access to your money for its own purposes.
