One of the hardest, but most important, components of financial fitness is saving money. It’s important that you keep some funds set aside to cover unexpected expenses. If you’re not already putting money into a savings account regularly, start out with just a little and add more as you move along.
Make 2014 the year to establish your savings with this 52-week savings challenge. Put a little bit of money aside each week, and come 2015, you’ll have a nice amount earning interest to help cover expenses when you need it.
Don’t have an EECU savings account yet? No problem! You can open one easily with just $5.00 through Online Banking. From the navigation bar within Online Banking, select “New Accounts” and choose the account type you wish to open. The process is easy and, in most cases, you can begin using your account immediately.
