DELRAY BEACH, FL. (4/10/18) – A 2017 national survey found that almost 60% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings, and almost 40% had none.
So, if it’s hard for adults, how do you teach your children to save? By turning it into a habit. Studies show that habits formed when you are young tend to stick. It’s why you still brush your teeth every day – we hope!
Research shows that when you picture yourself in the future achieving a goal, like buying a car or going to college, saving for it becomes easier. Start small. Help them save for a toy they want. Then sign them up for a youth savings account where they save for far-off goals.
As your credit union, we want to help you teach your children to learn good financial habits. Together we can help them blast-off toward a bright and wondrous future.
Michael Miller, CEO of IBMSECU stated, “It’s so important that we help educate today’s youth about financial well-being. They are our future. Teaching kids smart spending and saving habits is so important. We want to be a part of their financial journey.”
