CALKIDS SAVINGS ACCOUNT
This year, the State of California launched the California Kids Investment and Development Savings Program (CalKIDS). CalKIDS gives children in California a jumpstart on saving for college or career training. To be eligible for CalKIDS, participants must be born in California on or after July 1, 2022 or an eligible low-income public school student in grades 1-12 in California. All qualifying participants receive a seed deposit in a CalKIDS account to help pay for future education after high school!
How to find out if your child qualifies:
Visit the CalKIDS website at calkids.org/the-basics/who-is-eligible
Scroll to the bottom of the page where it says “Low-income Public School Students, 1st–12th Grade”
Enter your child’s 10-digit Statewide Student Identifier (SSID) number in the box where it says “check to see if your child is eligible to participate.”
You can find your child's 10-digit SSID by visiting our parent portal at parent.gusd.net
Note: CalKIDS accounts for current first graders will not be available until later this spring.
