According to Bankrate, 25 percent of Americans have no savings at all. The coronavirus pandemic has fueled this number, draining the bank accounts of many during a challenging financial year. The study also finds that more than half of Americans would be unable to cover three months’ worth of expenses with the current money they have saved in an emergency fund.
“We are pleased to celebrate National Savings Day by sharing valuable resources that focus on the importance of saving,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “No matter your income or stage of life, creating healthy financial habits is critical for setting yourself up for future financial success.”
