What is the Saver Plus Program?

Saver Plus is a matched savings and financial education program that aims to assist people on lower incomes to strengthen their financial skills and to develop a savings habit. Since 2004, Saver Plus has reached more than 32,000 Australians across 60 locations in every state and territory, helping them save more than $17.3 million and providing an additional $14 million in matched savings.

Saver Plus is a 10-month program that can assist you to save for your own or your children’s education.  Participants receive:

  • One dollar for every dollar you save, up to $500
  • financial skills training through MoneyMinded workshops,
  • personal support and guidance from a trusted community organisation, The Smith Family.

At the end of the program you can use your matched savings for education costs for yourself or your children, such as tablets, laptops, school uniforms, textbooks, excursions, and sports or music fees and equipment.

You may be eligible to join Saver Plus if you or your partner:

  • have a Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card;
  • are at least 18 years or over;
  • have some regular income from work (yourself or your partner) including casual, part-time, full-time, or seasonal employment; and
  • are a parent or guardian of a child at school OR are attending or returning to vocational education yourself;
  • live, work, study or have a child at school in an area where Saver Plus is delivered.
