America Saves Week Approaches!
February 27th to March 4th is America Saves Week, a time of year to review our saving strategies. A national campaign to promote saving for current needs and future goals with tools to help us be saver savvy.
America Saves provides free help to get you on the right track with your money. Here are two steps to get you started.
You can Assess Your Savings Plan
Like your health, you should assess your savings annually to make sure you are saving for all the right things. Complete the assessment to see if you are saving adequately and create a savings plan.
You can take the America Saves Pledge
Let America Saves help you reach your savings and debt reduction goals. It all starts when you make a commitment to yourself to save. That’s what this pledge is all about. And it doesn’t stop there. America Saves will keep you motivated with periodic information, advice, tips, and reminders sent by email or text message to help you reach your savings goal. Think of us as your own personal support system.
