CT Baby Bonds

  • In 2021, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to pass an initiative that invests directly in children born into poverty known as Baby Bonds. CT Baby Bonds will set aside funds for each baby born in Connecticut whose birth was covered by HUSKY. Those funds will be held, managed and invested by the Office of the Treasurer. When a participating child reaches adulthood (between the ages of 18-30), they will be eligible to claim funds to be used for:
    • Buying a home in Connecticut
    • Starting or investing in a Connecticut business
    • Paying for higher education or job training
    • Saving for retirement
