An early evaluation of the ECSP suggests that the program may have helped facilitate account ownership among the unbanked (see Beverly, Tescher, Romich, and Marzahl, in press for a detailed discussion of evaluation findings).
In the baseline survey, 28% of unbanked ECSP participants named large opening deposit requirements as the most important reason for not having an account.
One of the key features of the ECSP was the combination of electronic filing and direct deposit of refunds.
In the baseline survey, only 8% of unbanked ECSP participants named the bonus as the most important account feature.
One of the key findings from the ECSP evaluation was that short-term saving in ECSP accounts was quite limited (Beverly, Romich, and Tescher, 2003).
At the same time, by the end of four months, 43% of participants had deposited additional funds into ECSP accounts, and 7% had account balances that were greater than their refund amounts.
Our research also suggests that the ECSP may have encouraged the unbanked to develop ongoing relationships with banks.
