CHV May 2021 Savings Match and Withdrawals

by | May 27, 2021 | Inversant Savings Accounts

These instructions are for Inversant families enrolled in the Camp Harbor View (CHV) program site.

We recognize the thought and planning it takes to save for higher education, especially during a pandemic. We know how difficult this last year has been and celebrate the time and care you’ve put into your child’s education. 

Inversant will reward you for reaching your goal by matching your first $1,000 in savings. 

You can withdraw money from your Inversant savings account at Metro Credit Union after each deposit deadline. You may also leave it in your account for later use. The match dollars are available for approved higher education-related expenses.

When do I receive the savings match?

  • If you have reached your savings goal of $1,000 by May 31, 2021, Inversant will credit you with an additional $1,000 for educational expenses. Your savings and match dollars will be available for higher education expenses after June 1, 2021. 
  • If you have not reached your savings goal of $1,000 by May 31, 2021 you may keep working on your goal through July 31, 2021. Inversant will match your first $1,000 in savings at that time.

How does the match work?

Inversant will match, dollar-for dollar, your first $1,000 saved. The match dollars are available in the form of reimbursements for approved expenses and as funds payable directly to your child’s college or university. 

Example A: You have saved $1,000. Inversant matches your savings with an additional $1,000.You purchase a $2,000 laptop for your child. 

You submit the laptop receipt and a CHV Withdrawal Form to Inversant’s Boston Coordinator. Inversant mails you a $1,000 check, which comes directly from your match fund. 

Example B: You have saved $1,000. Inversant matches your savings with an additional $1,000. You receive an $800 tuition bill from your child’s college. 

You submit this bill and a CHV Withdrawal Form to Inversant’s Boston Coordinator. Inversant mails the college an $800 check. The $800 comes out of Inversant’s match fund, leaving you with $200 remaining in match dollars and the original $1,000 in your Inversant savings account.  Inversant draws from your match dollars until they are fully spent.

How do I access the match dollars?

Request reimbursement for approved expenses

1. Gather all receipts from higher education purchases, for example: 

  • Transportation
  • Laptop
  • Semester fees
  • Tuition
  • Other expenses (expenses that might not fit in the general definition of college expenses need to be approved) 

2. Please make sure the amount paid for and description of each product or service purchased (i.e., books, computer, student housing) are legible on the receipt. Receipts that don’t clearly show the price paid and product or service purchased will delay the reimbursement process.
