Studies show few Americans have adequate savings for retirement but it’s never too late – or too early – to start saving.
That day you blew a tire. The time your dishwasher overflowed. That vacation when your child got sick far from home and the doctor wouldn’t take your insurance. We all have those unexpected events in life that can lead to financial stress, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Never miss a beat when it comes to savings. Make it so easy you never have to think about it by setting aside money for savings automatically.
