America Saves Week 2021


We’re officially participating and you should to! / Ми офіційно беремо участь. Долучайтеся!

America Saves Week is all about individual financial wellness, and creating as well as maintaining a plan. For the past several years we’ve encouraged our UFCU team to take the America Saves Pledge, and in 2021, we’re inviting all of our members and friends to join! There are many benefits to taking the pledge on our website, and all tools, resources, and America Saves Week events are provided at no cost. Did we mention the #ImSavingFor sweepstakes for a chance to win $500? Take the Pledge and be an active participant. You’ll thank yourself later!

Reflecting on the past year and the lasting benefits of America Saves Week UFCO CEO, Oleg Lebedko, stated that, “Promoting automatic savings and other proven approaches to individual financial wellness is another way for our Credit Union to show support for and help guide our members through this challenging time.”

Since 2007 America Saves Week, coordinated by America Saves and its partners, has been an annual celebration as well as a call to action for everyday Americans to commit to saving successfully. Through the support of thousands of participating organizations, together we encourage our local communities to do a ‘gut-check’ on their finances and saving behaviors. The America Saves pledge is the framework that allows savers to set a goal, and make a plan to achieve better financial stability.
