WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navient, a leading asset management and business processing services company, celebrates America Saves Week, Feb. 26 through March 3, by encouraging more Americans to save money for their education, emergencies, and retirement.
“As a company we strive to help our customers and employees achieve financial success, including paying down debt faster,” said Jack Remondi, president and CEO, Navient. “During this year’s America Saves Week, Navient is pleased to join with hundreds of organizations across the country to encourage people to develop and maintain good savings goals and financial habits.”
In a national study from Navient and Ipsos, 93 percent of young adults, aged 22-35, said that they were saving. However, 33 percent admitted that they had saved nothing towards their goals and another 14 percent had saved less than $1,000.

For example, Navient’s free Path to Success program offers interactive videos on how interest works, savings and investments, among other topics. The company also encourages customers to use the automatic payments feature, which typically provides an interest rate break.
