What is Jumpstart

The West Virginia Jumpstart Savings Program is a state-administered program to help West Virginians save money to help cover the costs of pursuing a career in skilled trades and vocations.
Are you interested in becoming a mechanic? How about a welder? Do you dream of owning your own hair salon? If so, a Jumpstart Savings Account can help you set aside money for all the tools and supplies you need to be successful.
Only $25 is needed to open a Jumpstart Savings Account. After this, account owners can contribute as much as they want as often as they wish. There is no minimum or maximum contribution limit. Jumpstart accounts do not have a maximum yearly contribution amount or maximum lifetime limit.
The Jumpstart Savings Plan offers unique state income tax deductions for West Virginia taxpayers.
