You can use your matched savings for education-related costs such as computers, laptops and tablets, school uniforms, text books, sports fees and equipment, school excursions and more.
Saver Plus can help you:
build your skills around managing money;
become a regular saver; and
reach a savings goal.

Please note: a family may receive matched funds only once.
Local schools have agreed to communicate directly with families in communities where the Saver Plus program is available. Schools have not, and will not, provide your personal information to any organisations associated with this program. Neither the Department of Education, nor your local school, will know if you decide to participate. Your decision to participate in this program is entirely voluntary.
