How can Jumpstart help me?

Save for the things you need to get the job done.

If you’re a current or future trade professional in a qualifying profession, a Jumpstart Savings Account can help you set aside money for tools, supplies, licenses, certifications, and more.

Make your money work for you.

Jumpstart Savings Accounts are designed with maximum simplicity and flexibility in mind. With no monthly maintenance fees, transaction limits or minimum account balance required, you can enjoy a low-risk, tax-advantaged savings option with a competitive interest rate.

Don’t leave money on the table.

The West Virginia Jumpstart Savings Program is the only type of savings account in the nation that can offer state tax advantages for skilled tradespeople, entrepreneurs, and the blue-collar workforce.

By opening a Jumpstart Savings Account, you may be able to reduce your taxable income by as much as $25,000 per year.

Ignite your potential.

Like a college savings account, the Jumpstart Savings Program provides a place for parents, grandparents, and friends to contribute to your career success.

If you’re under 18 or recently enrolled in a vocational program, you may also be eligible to receive $100 in your Jumpstart Savings Account with the Ignite Incentive.

Recruit and retain a skilled workforce.

Sweeten the deal by utilizing the Jumpstart Savings Program as an employee benefit. Employers may be eligible to match contributions to an employee’s Jumpstart Savings account and receive a state tax credit of up to $5,000 per taxable year.
