The Florida Office of Financial Regulation today recognizes February 25 – March 2, 2019, as Florida Saves Week to encourage Floridians to save money and build personal wealth. Florida Saves Week is part of the national initiatives, America Saves Week and Military Saves Week.
Interim Commissioner Pamela Epting said, “I urge Floridians, especially those who are early in their careers or just entering the workforce, to establish a savings plan and make savings automatic. The Florida Office of Financial Regulation is a resource for those interested in learning about financial topics including how to protect yourself from a potential scam.

President of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) and Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation Michael S. Pieciak said, “Building a safe and secure financial future is critical for all generations and we must ensure this important message is making its way to Millennials. We cannot afford to let this younger generation try to build retirement security without the investor education and awareness tools they will need.”
In partnership with the North American Securities Administrators Association, the agency is focusing this year’s campaign on encouraging the younger generation to make an investment in their future financial success by setting savings goals. One of the easiest ways to make saving effective is to make it automatic. Learn more and take the savings pledge today at americasaves.org.
