America Saves Week Promotes Building Wealth, Not Debt

First Community Bank and Trust Encourages Everyone to Make a Habit of Saving

Beecher, IL (February 10, 2012) –"Set a Goal, Make a Plan, Save Automatically" is the theme for America Saves Week, a national campaign involving more than 1,000 non-profit, government, and corporate groups that encourages individuals and families to save money and build personal wealth. Scheduled for February 19-26 this year, the Week promotes good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.

The personal savings rate is near zero, most Americans are not saving adequately for retirement, and most lower-income households do not have adequate emergency savings for unexpected expenditures like a car repair. But with more societal encouragement and support, more Americans will be persuaded to build wealth, not debt.

First Community Bank and Trust is proud to participate in this campaign in an effort to promote the development of good savings habits. We will be posting Savings Tips daily during America Saves Week and encourage everyone to adopt those practices that will increase wealth, decrease debt and establish positive savings habits. Visit our website or Facebook page for more information and to share your ideas.
