America Saves Week (February 22 – 27, 2016) is an annual opportunity for individuals to assess their savings and take action to improve their financial security. The theme for this year’s America Saves Week is simple: Save Automatically.

Try these simple steps during America Saves Week to help yourself save automatically – and successfully:

 

1.) Assess Your Savings.

Like your health, you should assess your savings annually to make sure your savings priorities are on the right track. Take the America Saves 12-question assessment to find out your current standing and help you plan for the future.

 

2.) Evaluate your Savings Preparedness.

Check off your savings accomplishments on the Saver Checklist to further evaluate where your savings habits need strengthening for your future goals.

 

3.) Take the America Saves Pledge.

Those with a savings plan are two times more likely to save for emergencies and retirement than those without one. Join more than 450,000 American Savers who have already committed to save. When you take the pledge, you can choose to receive text message tips and reminders to help you save towards your goals.
