VIRTUAL Savings: A Little Can Make a Big Difference — Money Smart Week 2021

VIRTUAL Savings: A Little Can Make a Big Difference — Money Smart Week 2021 In-Person

Did you know that even a very modest savings cushion can be associated with major life improvements? Have you heard that savings of three months’ worth of living expenses is necessary to cover emergency expenses? Many financial education programs equate adequate emergency savings with this amount. While this guidance may work for some people, it isn’t a realistic goal for many.

Learn how and why a much smaller amount of savings (hint: in the low hundreds) can help keep your rent/mortgage protected and utilities on. Additionally, learn just how much (little) you might need to save per paycheck to reach these attainable goals. As a bonus, achieving these recommended amounts will likely allow you to be more financially satisfied and less likely to have to resort to high-cost borrowing options, such as pawnshops or payday loans. 

This event takes place virtually at 9 a.m., Sunday, April 11. CLICK HERE to register.
