Treasurer Steven Johnson encourages Kansans to save as part of America Saves Week
TOPEKA – (February 27, 2023) – Kansas State Treasurer Steven Johnson today encouraged Kansans to take time this week to think about their financial future, as part of America Saves Week.
America Saves Week, February 27 - March 3, 2023, is an annual national campaign that encourages individuals and families to check in on their finances by highlighting several key areas that contribute to financial stability, such as saving automatically, preparing for unexpected expenses, college and career savings, and reducing debt.
“Just as we keep a watchful eye over the state’s finances at the State Treasurer’s office, it is important for Kansas families to keep tabs on their budgets and make sure they’re saving enough for unexpected emergencies and future goals,” Johnson said. “We look forward to sharing information with Kansans over the next few days on ways our office can assist in achieving their financial goals.”
Throughout the week, Johnson’s office will share savings tips on social media, highlighting a different theme each day.
America Saves Week was first observed in 2007 and is coordinated by America Saves and its partners, as an annual call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving. More information is available at https://americasavesweek.org/.
