Why Connect Financial Education and
Savings Accounts?
• Academic achievement – educational savings
account ownership is associated with higher
scores on math achievement tests
• Improved college aspirations – children with
< $500 in savings for college are 3X more likely to
attend and 4X more likely to graduate from
• Financial health - students with a savings account
7 years later were 2X more likely to have a
savings account and 4X more likely to own stocks
