    I am looking for a form that allows a client to enter information, but also lets them save an incomplete form and access it later.

    Would also like a form that emails a client (As well as myself) the form answers so they have a record.

    With JotForm it is possible to save form and continue later. You might consider using one of the following options:

    1. How to Enable Auto fill feature - save form entries to continue later 

    Auto fill method is based on browser local storage. It is saving the form data on users browser, so user can open the form later and he/she will see the past data. Note - user will need to use same browser to access data.

    2. How to save form to continue later (Session method)

    The Session method is saving the data on our servers. With this method you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and second as primary. Then users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    If you want to receive email with submitted data you need set Email Notification inside of your form. And if you want that your users also receive email with data that have submitted you need to create a form Autoresponder email
