WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ICMA-RC is once again participating in America Saves Week, which will take place February 27-March 4, 2017. The goal of this annual, week-long campaign is to promote good savings habits and encourage Americans to create or evaluate their savings goals for the year.
For this year's campaign, ICMA-RC has created an America Saves microsite (www.icmarc.org/AmericaSaves) to help public sector employees reflect on their 2017 savings and retirement goals, and learn useful tips on spending responsibly.
The site contains educational resources, including a video about saving, an infographic about responsible spending, and an easy-to-use savings calculator. Additional resources include ICMA-RC's interactive Your Future Animated feature and the America Saves #ImSavingFor photo contest.
"The first few months of the year is the perfect time to evaluate ones savings and use this opportunity to review where you are and make changes as appropriate," said Alex Hannah, Managing Vice President, Marketing and Communications. "The resources we have created for America Saves Week tie in to our focus on helping public sector employees make sound financial decisions about their future."
