The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) issued a press release today encouraging consumers to use America Saves Week as a time to begin or continue saving towards financial goals they have set for themselves.
America Saves Week, which runs between February 24 and March 1, 2014, is a week wherein various organizations engage the communities they serve to promote consumers making a savings commitment, and then gaining access to ideas, tools, and other resources that help the consumers to reach the goal. In particular, the Week encourages consumers to think about ways to automate saving toward the goal, such as through regular transfers into a savings fund. The FDIC has developed educational resources to help consumers evaluate savings options.
