Welders: Savings designed for YOU!
A career in welding can yield financial security, career advancement, and the opportunity to work across multiple industries in a variety of locations. The Jumpstart Savings Program is a tax-advantaged savings account that helps both new and experienced welders in West Virginia save for the tools, equipment and other startup costs required to launch or sustain their businesses.
Although welding is one of the top-paying skilled trades in the world, the American Welding Society anticipates that the occupation will encounter a shortage of about 200,000 welders by 2025 as seasoned welding professionals retire.
If business startup costs present a barrier for your career in this trade, the Jumpstart Savings Program may be able to help you save for the specialized tools & equipment you need to be successful.
