Application and Documentation

Prosperity Account Application & Net Worth Assessment

  • For married couples: If applying together and one person is not employed, you may still apply for a Prosperity Account as long as one spouse receives consistent income. Please fill out the Prosperity Account application in the name of the person who receives income. This applies to married couples only.
  • If applying single: You must have a consistent source of income.
  • Please list accurate balances for your checking, savings, 401(k), stocks, bonds and other investments.
  • Last year’s income should match the amount listed in your previous year’s tax return.
  • If you are on government or public assistance, please list the type of assistance and the monthly amount you receive. If the type of assistance you receive is not on the application (such as WIC, Medicaid, daycare assistance or other), please write it on the second page of the application.

If you are receiving Social Security, please specify what type of SSI you are receiving and/or whom you are receiving it for (self, child, spouse, parent, etc…)

Would you like to apply for a Prosperity Account? First, take the pre-qualification survey.

If you prequalify, sign up for a Prosperity Center Orientation.
