Saver Plus assists individuals and families on lower incomes to build assets and improve financial capability, and has supported thousands of lower income earners to develop a lasting savings habit.

 

Saver Plus offers:

  • up to $500 in matched savings for education costs
  • fun, free and informal financial education workshops
  • assistance and support from a Saver Plus coordinator to establish a savings goal and develop a savings habit.

When participants reach their savings goal, ANZ matches the amount – up to $500 –towards education costs including uniforms, text books, laptops, sports equipment, music tuition, TAFE or apprenticeship costs, and much more.
