September 20, 2012  9:30 am - 10:45 am

Room: Delaware A

Prize-linked savings (PLS) is a proven savings strategy that encourages everyday consumers to save more money through prizes and incentives. Now, the PLS landscape is changing: more states have passed PLS legislation and innovative asset-building programs and products around the country are using PLS concepts to better serve their consumers and clients. This session will offer a look into the future of prize-linked savings and other game-based strategies, practical insights from real-world asset-building programs that have incorporated these tools, and products and strategies for programs and advocates to implement on their own.
