View event photos here.
Thank you for joining Prosperity Now and Prudential Financial on Capitol Hill to discuss the lack of emergency savings for working families around the country and how policymakers, researchers and advocates can push for policy solutions to help fill this void. This event highlighted promising federal proposals to help low-income workers and their families save. In addition, Prudential discussed an innovative emergency savings feature they have been piloting, which would help employers to further support their employees in saving.
