Interactive America Saves Annual Report Now Available

We are pleased to share with you the America Saves 2014 Annual Report. A lot happened from March 2013 to February 2014.

We hired new staff for outreach and communications and created new products that encourage individuals to assess their savings status and take financial action. We also saw the largest America Saves Week to date, where we collectively reached over 40 million people with opportunities to save. Most importantly, we are increasing the number of people who pledge to reduce debt, save money, and set up automatic ways to do so.

This year's annual report includes:

  • Research from America Saves
  • America Saves First-Time Worker overview
  • Text Message initiative results
  • New tools and resources for savers
  • Our work with partnering organization and local America Saves campaigns
  • America Saves Week 2014 results
