Even before the pandemic and today’s inflationary pressures, many Americans lacked enough emergency savings to cover a $400 unexpected expense. A recent BPC survey found that nearly a quarter of American workers report having zero savings set aside for emergencies. But there are solutions on the horizon to help households as Congress considers legislation that would pave the way for better outcomes.
Join BPC and the Funding Our Future coalition for a conversation about increasing access to emergency savings for American workers. The event will begin with a conversation with renowned personal finance expert Suze Orman, followed by a discussion with two champions of emergency savings, Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Todd Young (R-IN), who will discuss their longstanding efforts on this issue.
