Money Monday: Americans are saving a little more

A bit of good news: more Americans are saving.

“The percentage of people who have adequate savings to cover six months of expenses — a six-month-stash — has jumped to 31%, according to a new study from Bankrate.com. That’s up from 28% last year and 22% in 2015.

“Not everyone is there yet: a quarter of Americans still have no savings at all. But that is down from 28% last year and the report shows positive signs that saving habits are improving” (Bahney, Anna. “Americans are saving (a little) more.” money.cnn.com/2017/06/20/pf/emergency-fund).

Apparently, it’s the younger people and the middle-class that are doing well at saving; read more of this article at money.cnn.com.
