Increase your savings: America Saves Week
Department of Retirement Systems is a proud supporter of America Saves Week. This year, the event will take place Feb. 27- March 3.
About America Saves Week
Since 2007, America Saves Week has been an annual celebration as well as a call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving successfully. The America Saves pledge helps savers to set a goal and make a plan to achieve better financial stability.
Each day will focus on a different way to save:
- Monday, Feb. 27 — Saving automatically
- Tuesday, Feb. 28 — Saving for the unexpected
- Wednesday, March 1 — Saving for major milestones
- Thursday, March 2 — Paying down debt is saving
- Friday, March 3 — Saving at any age
In 2022, over 400,000 people set up a new savings account or made a deposit into an existing savings account as part of America Saves Week. Over $1.14 billion dollars were deposited into new and existing savings accounts.

Savers who plan are twice as likely to save successfully. What do you want to save for? Paying down credit card debt? A new home? Bigger retirement savings?

Rumors. They sure can be wild at times. At DRS, it’s not unusual for us to speak with customers who have heard a rumor that, as it so often turns out, is not exactly accurate.
