More than 32,000 people have joined Saver Plus since the program began in 2003.

Participants have used the matched savings provided by ANZ to purchase a wide range of educational items, including computers and computer equipment, text books, school uniforms and school camps. Matched savings can also be used for extra curricular activities such as music lessons and sport.

The education workshops are extremely rewarding, and participants finish the program with improved money management skills and a long term savings habit - most continue to save long after they complete the program.


Saver Plus is available in 60 locations across Australia (PDF 152kB).

You may be eligible to join Saver Plus if you or your partner:

  • have a Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card
  • have some regular income from work
  • are at least 18 years old and
  • are a parent or guardian of a child at school or are doing a vocational training course yourself.

How it works

Saver Plus provides an opportunity to have every dollar saved (up to $500) matched with an additional dollar for your own or your family’s education-related expenses.

You can apply to join Saver Plus by contacting your local Saver Plus Worker in your region. On being accepted into the program, you will set a 10 month savings goal with help from your Saver Plus Worker and will open an ANZ Progress Saverdisclaimer account.

The program also includes 10 hours of fun, informal financial education workshops.

If you successfully complete the program, ANZ matches your savings dollar-for-dollar, up to $500. This money can be used for education costs (either your children's or your own) such as computers, uniforms, books and sports equipment.

More than 32,000 people have joined Saver Plus since the program began.
