Promoting automatic savings to help people reach their savings goals
Darke County (2-14-23) – As part of America Saves Week 2023, scheduled for February 27 – March 3, 2023, Ohio State University (OSU) Extension professionals are encouraging their communities to check-in on their finances by highlighting several key areas that contribute to financial stability, such as saving automatically, preparing for unexpected expenses, retirement, and reducing debt.
Our state-wide campaign, Ohio Saves, offers Ohioans the opportunity to engage with OSU Extension on a variety of topics including, “Saving for Major Milestones”, “Saving at Any Age”, and how to “Save Automatically.”
Throughout Ohio Saves Week, February 27 – March 3, OSU Extension will share information and helpful tools through social media to encourage Ohioans to set and carry out a savings goal. Daily webinars on financial topics will provide people the opportunity to learn evidence-based skills in order to improve their economic situations.
