Palm Coast, FL( February 25, 2013) – As part of America Saves Week 2013, scheduled for February 25 – March 2, Intracoastal Bank is spreading the saving message, and urging the community to participate in America Saves Week.
“Only 66% of American’s have sufficient emergency funds for unexpected expenses like a car repair or a visit to the doctor,” said District 3 Flagler County Commissioner Barbara Revels. “The opportunity to educate the public during this week on how to create a savings plan and save automatically is another way Intracoastal Bank reaches out to help our community,” she added.
Intracoastal Bank offers automatic savings plans, and encourages saving in several ways, including educational videos on their website at http://www.intracoastalbank.net/. Clicking on the Consumer Education tab on the left hand side will take them to a range of slide shows, one of them teaches that financial experts suggest saving 10% of your gross income each month. Another idea is to have money automatically debited from your paycheck so it’s never ‘touched’ or seen before deposited into a savings account.
America Saves Week is coordinated by America Saves and the America Savings Education Council. The Week is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.
