America Saves Week – February 21-25, 2022
Since 2007, America Saves Week has been an annual celebration as well as a call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving successfully and reducing debt. Belco is joining thousands of participating organizations to encourage our local communities to do a financial check-in to get a clear view of their finances. Individuals are also encouraged to take the America Saves Pledge in order to clearly establish their financial goals and get information, resources, and support as they work toward them.
Over the past two years, we’ve all experienced some significant setbacks. Currently, most everyday Americans, particularly low-to-moderate income earners, are focused on recovering from the economic effects of the pandemic.
That’s why America Saves Week 2022 has one single focus: Building Financial Resilience. Being financially resilient is more than having access to money; it includes being conscious of your own financial landscape, being aware of available resources, and being willing to seek out and take advantage of opportunities that will support and increase your financial wellness.
Check out the daily themes below to learn more about specific topics, and gain tools that will allow you and your family to take action toward building financial confidence. For additional resources throughout the week, connect with Belco on social media.
