Saving is truly a family affair for Jeff’s household. During America Saves Week 2019, he pledged to save for retirement. But making a commitment and creating a plan to save isn’t a new concept for him.
“We did three things when each of our daughters were born: 1) filed for a social security number, 2) opened a credit union account in each daughter's name and, 3) started payroll deduction from our paychecks.
