    PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CIT Bank, CIT Group's (NYSE: CIT) national online bank (Member FDIC), today announced the launch of the Savings Builder1 account, a new product designed to reward customers who build a habit of savings.  The Savings Builder account offers smart savings strategies for consumers regardless of where they are in their financial journey. Consumers can qualify for a higher interest rate either by consistently saving at least $100 each month or maintaining a balance of $25,000 or more.

    "Our goal is to make it easier for a broader group of individuals to get a bigger bang for their savings buck," said Ravi Kumar, head of Internet Banking for CIT Bank. "The Savings Builder product is unique in that it rewards those who embrace a habit of consistently saving so they can reach their goals faster."

    Approximately 48 percent of U.S. consumers have encountered an unexpected expense over the past year, according to a 2018 CIT survey.2 Yet when it comes to saving for unexpected expenses such as a car repair or health issue, more than one in four consumers report they do not save anything. Another quarter of consumers save less than 5 percent of their household income each month.

    "Establishing a plan is fundamental to achieving financial resiliency for both the planned and unexpected events life presents," continued Kumar. "This new digital product provides a convenient platform for individuals looking to make smart savings choices for whatever their goals may be."
