On-Demand Webinar Available Until August 22, 2020

Recent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) research finds that even small amounts of liquid savings can make a big difference in financial well-being. Unfortunately, 40 percent of Americans would sell something or borrow money to cover even a $400 emergency expense. It can be difficult to put money away for emergencies. However, without some savings cushion, unexpected expenses can derail people from achieving their financial goals.

Through the “Start Small, Save Up” initiative recently announced by Director Kraninger, the CFPB offers tips, tools, and information to help consumers build a basic savings cushion, as a foundation for securing their financial futures. The mission of the CFPB includes educating and empowering consumers to make better informed financial decisions. By law, the Bureau is charged with developing and implementing initiatives to support savings in a variety of ways.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn more about the CFPB's "Start Small, Save Up" initiative
  • Discuss strategies and ideas for educating and empowering your credit union members to start saving
