YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO JOIN A SAVINGS PROGRAM THAT MATCHES EVERY
DOLLAR YOU SAVE, UP TO $500.
As you may be aware, the Department of Education supports parents to provide financially for
their children and refers families to community and government organisations that can offer
additional support to families. Saver Plus, Australia’s largest matched savings program, is one
such program and assists people to save for education expenses by matching their savings
dollar for dollar up to $500.
Saver Plus was developed by Brotherhood of St Laurence and ANZ in 2002 and is delivered by
The Smith Family and Brotherhood of St Laurence in Western Australia. More than 32,000
people across Australia have participated in the program, saving over $17.3 million.
The Department wishes to offer eligible parents the opportunity to participate in Saver Plus.
