The state’s money experts are hoping a new education campaign will improve those numbers.
State Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher unveiled the “Your Money, Your Life” campaign at the Capitol to help people take control of their finances.
The campaign includes a new website that has tips on saving for retirement, saving for college, and getting out from under credit card debt, but the experts say even people with low incomes can set a little aside each week to save for emergencies and invest for retirement.
Log onto www.yourmoneyyourlife.org for ideas on how to get out of debt and save for your future.
Look for public service announcement on the “Your Money, Your Life” campaign, and a half-hour TV special later in the year.
