ASW2015 Savings Focus: Save for Emergencies

It’s the last day of America Saves Week, and we want to make sure that you’re covered for emergencies when life happens – not IF it happens.

An emergency can include anything from an unexpected car or home repair to a medical emergency or loss of a job. Creating and maintaining an emergency fund can mean the difference between staying afloat when life catches you by supply or finding yourself swimming in debt, or worse. There’s no time like the present to start an emergency savings fund; make it automatic with small, regularly scheduled contributions that will build up over time. Don’t get caught in the rain.
