Not only will the money you deposit into your IDA be matched—giving you much more money a lot more quickly—but you'll also gain financial experience along the way.

As you build your savings to reach your IDA goal, you'll learn how to manage money, develop a spending plan, pay yourself first and develop other important personal finance skills.

In the future, you’ll continue to use these skills even after you’ve accomplished your initial goal. Across the country, IDAs are helping participants—people just like you—increase their savings rates, build their assets and get connected to the economic mainstream and the people in it.
