Building a Life Together
Lindsey and Michael, a young married couple, were determined to begin their lives together on solid financial footing. Both Lindsey and Michael opened IDAs and began saving diligently for their first home. Using their income tax refunds and saving each month, they each contributed $2,000 to their IDA accounts. In just a few months, their savings and matching funds produced $12,000 for a down payment for a home. They have now moved in and are busy working on renovations – learning a whole new set of skills!
