SaverLife Nevada Launch

 

United Way of Southern Nevada joins EARN.org to launch SaverLife Nevada on THURSDAY, September 13

Nevada is the first to launch a statewide campaign to increase savings for 1,000 families

On September 13, EARN.org will bring SaverLife to Nevada with the support of the Nevada Bankers Association and the United Way of Southern Nevada. Three Nevada State Senators will participate in the launch event: Senator Julia Ratti, Senator Yvanna Cancela and Senator Scott Hammond. RSVP to the event here: https://i.earn.org/2NuEgcY

An innovative online savings program already serving over 100,000 members, SaverLife Nevada will provide small cash incentives to 1,000 individuals to encourage families to build a savings habit and a financial cushion. Nevada residents who join SaverLife Nevada are eligible for prizes and $10 a month in savings incentives for six months. They also receive access to free resources and financial education via email and at SaverLife.org. Enroll online at saverlife.org/Nevada.

Though many participants have never saved before, they set aside on average $584 in six months and show improved financial habits such as sticking to a budget (40%), spending less (46%), and being prepared for a financial emergency (77%).
