SDCCU presents a series of webinars focused on saving as part of SDCCU’s Financial Wellness WednesdaysSAN DIEGO, Calif., (February 27, 2023) – San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is committed to promoting the importance of building a strong savings to maintain a foundation of financial security and overall wellness through its support of America Saves Week, taking place February 27 to March 4, 2023. On Wednesday, March 1, SDCCU will present three educational webinars focused on saving at various stages of life as part of Financial Wellness Wednesdays. The first webinar at 9 a.m. is Simple Ways to Slash Spending, at noon is LPL Research Presents: Financial Outlook 2023 and at 4 p.m. is Managing Finances: The Business of Life, a great presentation for teens.
“We are pleased to do our part to help educate the community on how to increase their savings by starting small and saving up,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “Creating consistent saving habits, no matter how small you start, can make a big difference. The community is encouraged to take advantage of these resources to help create their financial plan, which is the first step in building a successful financial future.”
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), 40 percent of Americans could not cover even a $400 emergency expense out of their own savings. This is one of the reasons the CFPB started the Start Small, Save Up initiative to help consumers build a basic savings cushion and better saving habits for a more secure financial future.
This webinar series focused on saving is part of Financial Wellness Wednesdays, an ongoing program hosted by SDCCU to help the community access free financial wellness information.
