AARP Foundation Launches MySavingsJar Program Aimed At Helping Older Adults Do More With Their Money

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AARP Foundation has launched AARP Foundation MySavingsJarTM, an online resource developed to help older adults and their families take small, achievable steps to save money. More than 5,000 individuals have joined the platform since its beta launch in May 2019.

"Many have no cash set aside to cover emergencies. AARP Foundation MySavingsJar offers practical tips and local resources to support a savings habit and help older adults start building up financial reserves."

AARP Foundation MySavingsJar helps people take small steps to set aside cash to deal with life's financial challenges ? like car repairs, high utility bills or emergency medical treatment. The free program offers social support, resources and expert coaching to help people save and achieve more control over their expenses.
