It's no secret that America has a savings issue. Many folks in this country still live paycheck to paycheck without any savings for retirement or for any emergencies. Scary, indeed.
To get a better education on what's going on and how to remedy this issue, we invited America Saves Director Allie Vered on the program. Allie informed us that the annual America Saves Week campaign will commence February 26 - March 3, 2018, with each day setting a new goal in the savings department:
Monday, February 26: Save with a plan
Tuesday, February 27: Save the easy way…automatically
Wednesday, February 28: Save for rainy days
Thursday, March 1: Save to retire
Friday, March 2: Save the extra
Saturday, March 3: Save as a family
Allie adds that credit unions have been and continue to be an integral part of this program and have done amazing work in this area with their members.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts -- and keep saving!
