Question: Why do we need My JumpVault? Can’t we just file our papers with our case workers?
Answer: My JumpVault helps you keep track of important records you will need throughout your youth and adulthood. Paper filing systems are quickly becoming obsolete in the United States, and there are so many documents and required records to complete, collect, and store, it can be a tedious chore—not to mention the increased chances of a document becoming misplaced or lost. My JumpVault not only allows you to upload and securely store and save this information, it even helps to remind you what information is needed and how close you are to completing groupings of information that are required as you get older and age through the foster care system. Finally, My JumpVault is fun to use..

Question: How long does the youth have access to My JumpVault?
Answer: Youth can begin using My JumpVault at age 14, as they are old enough to understand cyber security. Until age 18, the caseworker has access to the Youth’s My JumpVault to assist in the collection and uploading of documents. After age 18, the Independent living specialist or other assigned personal will still be able to partner and assist the youth with keeping their Vault up-to-date but will be limited on what information he/she can view at the discression of the youth. Upon the youth aging out of Independent Living then only the system administrator has total access. The youth can use My JumpVault until age 28 with warning messages automatically generated at age 27 to download any needed information and continued warnings until the cutoff. The youth may opt out at any time before reaching age 28. When the youth turns 28 a disc with the youth’s information will be sent to them by certified mail.
Question: How secure is My JumpVault?
Answer: Security is the top priority. The “vault” concept originated from the youth’s significant and valid concern over privacy and security. The website is housed in a secure, HIPAA complaint data center and maintained with the same security used by financial Institutions and the Federal government. Additional measures are implemented within the system infrastructure to provide higher security for highly confidential documents, such as protected health information. Passwords, encryption and a fast “time-out” feature provide physical security and protect data while in transmission and in the vault.
