Help to Save

What is Help to Save?

Help to Save is a new savings scheme for people on low incomes who are claiming certain benefits. Help to Save gives you a bonus payment from the government of up to 50% (half) on savings paid into the account.

You can apply for a Help to Save account if you’re:

  • receiving Working Tax Credit

  • have a nil award for Working Tax Credit, but are receiving Child Tax Credits

  • claiming Universal Credit and earned a minimum of £542.88 in their last assessment period

You can save up to £50 per month.

Eligible customers can open an online account within minutes. You can do this at or through the HMRC app.

To set up your account all you’ll need is:

  • your National Insurance Number

  • your bank account details – the bonus and any withdrawals will be paid into this account

  • a Government Gateway account. If you don’t have a Government Gateway account you can create one as part of your application

Where can I find out more?

You can download a leaflet giving the top ten reasons to open an account here.

You can also visit the Money Advice Service or for more information.
