2012 Assets Learning Conference

Savings Bonds: Tax Time Innovations

September 21, 2012 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Room: Virginia B

It is never too late to start saving or investing for the future, even for low-income individuals who have little capacity to do so. Savings bonds, especially those introduced during tax time, are one practical tool for low- to moderate-income individuals to form healthy savings habits and protect themselves from financial setbacks. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to learn about savings bonds and their important implications for practice, policy and research.


 This session is sponsored by IDA sponsor, the Assets for Independence Program.
