Brilliant Baby Personal Savings

What is the Brilliant Baby Personal Savings Program?

The Oakland Promise Brilliant Baby Personal Savings Program is a free and easy to use 6-month program that helps you save up towards a financial goal that you set. Through a partnership with EARN, Brilliant Baby families can receive up to $200 in savings incentives over a 6 month period. The program offers a dollar for dollar match on the first $150 you save, plus a $50 bonus if you save any amount for six months in a row.

Who can participate?

The Brilliant Baby Personal Savings Program is available only to those parents who have a baby with a Brilliant Baby CSA and who are participating in Brilliant Baby Financial Coaching.  You are able to enroll in the Personal Savings Program at any time between beginning and completing the financial coaching process. This is a six month savings program with financial incentives paid at the end of six months.

How to participate

For those enrolled in coaching, follow these steps to take advantage of the program.

  1. Connect your existing savings account to the Oakland Promise Brilliant Baby Personal Savings Program’s online platform using your laptop or phone.
  2. Save as much as you can in the next 6 months.
  3. Earn up to $200 in incentives by saving at least $150 consistently over a period of 6 months.
  4. After 6 months, you will be able to claim your rewards after completing an exit survey and providing your bank’s routing and account numbers.

Coaches are willing and able to assist those who need help signing up for an EARN account and/or a personal savings account. Brilliant Baby Financial coaches will help you connect your savings account to the Earn platform. If you don’t have a savings account, your financial coach can  help you get one.
