Before I was elected State Treasurer, I was a young contract welder for a mining operation here in West Virginia. I dreamed of opening my own mobile welding business, but I soon met the harsh and expensive reality of entrepreneurship. It was that experience that inspired me to launch the Jumpstart Savings Program.
The first in the nation, the Jumpstart Savings Program provides West Virginian tradespeople, entrepreneurs, and blue-collared workers with a new way to save. Finally, you can easily set aside money for tools, supplies, equipment and more. It offers unique state tax advantages for both account contributions and qualified distributions.
Now is the time. West Virginia is building a skilled workforce and you can be a part of it.
