What Are Your Fall Financial Goals?

Legends Bank wants to help you get back on track in time for the holidays.

Remember those resolutions you made at the beginning of the year for better financial planning this year? Fall is a great time to revisit those goals and get ready for the extra spending that may arise over the holidays.

Here are a few tips:

  • Build an emergency fund
    • A high-yield online savings account is a good place to park your
      emergency fund. And looking forward to November, which has 5 Fridays,
      put that extra paycheck in there as a bonus.
  • Boost your retirement savings
    • Now is a good time to consider increasing your contributions for the rest
      of the year. The IRS allows you to contribute up to $18,000 a year, and
      the amount is deducted from your taxable income. And if you’re over 50,
      you can contribute an extra $6,000 to build up that nest egg for
      retirement.
  • Budget for holiday shopping
    • The average consumer spends an average of $289 on “Black Friday”. If
      you make a weekly transfer of just $25 from your checking to your
      savings account starting now, you’d have $300 to spend on “Black
      Friday.”
  • Prepare for open enrollment
    • If you have a health plan through your employer or a health insurance
      exchange, open enrollment is your annual opportunity to assess your
      health insurance and other company benefits. See if you’re taking
      advantage of what is offered.
  • There’s an app for that!
    • Use technology to pay off debts and help you budget. Plan for holiday
      gift-giving by using an app that can track your spending and budget and
      curb your impulse buying.
