How the Program Works

A partnership is created among an employer, one or more financial institutions, and America Saves.

  • America Saves provides employees with the motivation to set up direct deposit and save part of their paycheck through a short, all-electronic program. America Saves also provides ongoing support, information, and motivation to save regularly through emails and text messages.
  • Youth Employment Programs provide direct deposit and the America Saves First-Time Workers Program to employees.
  • Financial institutions provide no-fee, low opening balance accounts for youth employees to save.
