OBL partners with FDIC to host America Saves Week informational webinar

Ohio Bankers LeagueThe Ohio Bankers League recently partnered with the FDIC to host an America Saves Week webinar for financial institutions and other entities from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Feb. 25.

Non-profit groups, government associations and financial institutions will seek to educate consumers on the importance of saving during America Saves Week, which takes place Feb. 24 to March 1.

According to data from the Consumer Federation of America, only 54 percent of Americans indicated they have a savings plan, and only 43 percent said their savings plan allows them to save enough to achieve their goals. Two-thirds of Americans said they have sufficient emergency funds for unexpected expenses.

The webinar will provide information on how customers can benefit from participating in America Saves Week, as well as how to implement electronic and co-brandable materials and how to track impact.

To participate in the webinar, interested parties are encouraged to register via email at chicommunityaffairs@fdic.gov, and to provide the name, email and phone number for each attendee. Registration is open until Feb. 21.
