We are a population on the move.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American will move 11.7 times in their lifetime, 9.1 of those times after the age of 18 and 2.7 of them after the age of 45. From layoffs, to career changes, to new opportunities, moving — across town or across the country — is a fact of modern American life. Just over 11 percent of the U.S. population, or roughly 35 million people, changed residences between 2015 and 2016, with about 20 percent crossing state and even country lines. (And moving to a new state is a whole different subject.)
But moving isn’t easy. Whether you are a recent college grad or a midcareer professional, pulling up roots comes with its share of headaches. SAM’s Housing Plan Course is a good place to start when considering a move, helping you assess your housing needs and consider your financial options in your new hometown.

Sixty-six percent of American households with less than $100,000 in income said they could not handle an unexpected expense of $10,000, according to research recently conducted by Money magazine. Whether or not you currently have one, an emergency fund is essential to your ability to manage unexpected financial challenges and maintain your overall financial health.
SAM’s Emergency Fund calculator can help you analyze your financial needs to determine how much you need to save.
