Saving money is a common financial goal for many American households. Some save to set aside for their children’s education, for a nice vacation, to purchase a home, for retirement or just to have in case of an emergency.
Emergency funds have been cast into the national spotlight as the COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to shut down operations and many workers were laid off as shelter-in-place orders were enacted across the country to curb the continued spread of the disease. Mercury Insurance recently polled U.S. homeowners and renters, and found that 36% of survey respondents don’t have adequate savings to support their families for six months in the event of an emergency. An easy way to help boost your savings that many people overlook is to shop around for a better deal on car insurance, which only 25% said they plan to do this year.
Californians1 , for example, can save an average of $670 on auto insurance if they switch to Mercury, according to the state’s Department of Insurance. If you’re a customer of one of the following companies, you could be overpaying by an average of:
- $1,154 for Liberty Mutual
