Learn how small changes can make a big difference: celebrate America Saves Week with Fidelity

According to SmartAsset.com, around half of American households and 29 percent of those age 55 and older do not have retirement accounts or pensions. While the 2015 Annual National Survey Assessing Household Savings revealed improvement last year, Americans are still not saving nearly enough for retirement.

For those who want to save more, you’re in luck as America Saves Week is Feb. 22-27. Fidelity, Vanderbilt's retirement administrative services provider, wants to help you meet your objective.

Started in 2007, America Saves Week involves thousands of national organizations that encourages saving money and building personal wealth. The campaign is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior in their employees and a chance for individuals to assess their saving status.

Fidelity is making it easy for you to participate in American Saves Week 2016 with free webinars Feb. 22-27, including a workshop hosted by award winning personal finance journalist Jean Chatzky. Whether you want to learn how to create a budget, invest with confidence or brush up on the basics, Fidelity has you covered.
