Dec 18 Wed
Prize-Linked Savings Webinar
10:00 am

Please join us for a webinar to discuss Prize-Linked Savings (PLS) opportunities in Connecticut on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.

To register please contact Susan O’Loughlin at soloughlin@culct.coop.

During the 2013 legislative session, the CT General Assembly passed a bill that allows credit unions to offer savings promotion raffles – savings products that offer prizes in order to incent increased savings activity.  Connecticut is the 8thstate to pass similar legislation, following in the footsteps of Nebraska, Rhode Island, Washington, North Carolina, Maryland, Maine, and Michigan.As financial institutions, you are acutely aware of the importance of savings as part of someone’s financial portfolio.

The webinar will feature Doorways to Dreams Fund, a national non-profit that has been providing technical assistance, advice, and evaluation for PLS products around the country.  In this webinar, we will cover:

  • The basics of PLS
  • Overview of Connecticut law
  • Success/Impact in other states
  • Implementation considerations/how-tos

Please join us for a great conversation. Attending this webinar is not considered to be an indication of commitment to offer the product – the goal of the meeting is to get a shared understanding of the opportunity, discuss options in Connecticut, and see what credit unions would like to explore a prize-linked savings product. Please share this invitation with any relevant staff or other credit union partners.
