Inland Empire Saves and Credit.org, its sponsor and a proud partner of the America Saves initiative, spread the good word about America Saves Week and Military Saves Week this year, offering savers opportunities to engage all week long.
Inland Empire Saves initiated and received two government proclamations in honor of America Saves Week. Both the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, and the City Council of Riverside have proclaimed the week of February 27 – March 4, 2017 to be America Saves Week. They shared this news, along with encouragement to pledge to save to their colleagues and constituents.
Credit.org’s Jennifer Rodriguez spoke at the 2017 Military Saves Week, held at U.S. Marine Corps Camp Pendleton. Service members received educational resources and training to prepare for decisions regarding the new Blended Retirement System (BRS), how to save for the future, manage debt, investing and TSP. They were also briefed on how to understand, manage and improve their credit score.
Credit.org posted daily blogs with highlights from the day’s tweet chats and focused advice surrounding the day’s Savings Focus. They also supported Inland Empire Saves’ webinars Monday through Thursday, and bringing partners like the Virtual Counselor Network into the mix.
