AMERICA SAVES WEEK
Tip #1: Did you know? Savers with a plan are twice as likely to save successfully for things like retirement and their (or their children’s) education! America Saves Week is a great time to start a healthy savings habit. Create a simple savings plan today!
Tip #2: Never miss a beat when it comes to saving for your future. Make it so easy that you never have to think about saving by setting money aside automatically each pay date. Learn how to set up automatic transfers from your checking account to your savings account or have part of your paycheck automatically deposited into a savings account. Already saving automatically? Find ways to automate other aspects of your financial life in 2019.
Tip #3: We all have those unexpected events in life that can lead to financial stress, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Putting aside a few dollars a week into a savings account for unexpected costs can build financial security and relieve a lot of anxiety! Saving for the unexpected starts with small, regularly scheduled contributions that build up over time.
Tip #4: Studies show few Americans have adequate savings for retirement. It’s never too late, or too early, to start saving. Saving now for retirement will help ensure you have enough money to enjoy a comfortable standard of living when you stop working. Participate in a work-related retirement program such as a 401(k) or open an Individual Retirement Account (or IRA). Already saving for retirement? Try increasing the amount you save by 1 percent each year.
Tip #5: Did you know you’re more likely to save a windfall than a small amount consistently over time? Hack that psychology by saving your bonuses, raises, and tax refunds. This tax season, get ahead of your financial goals by depositing at least $50 of your refund into a savings account.
Tip #6: Good savings habits start at home. Model good financial habits for your children by saving money from your paycheck, delaying purchases until you can afford them, avoiding whim purchases, and establishing a monthly budget. Teach your children to do the same and help them open their own savings accounts. They love seeing their money grow!
