A new survey says most Americans don't have enough money saved to cover a $1,000 unexpected expense.
"Be a rebel and save money on a regular basis," financial analyst Greg McBride said in a Bankrate video.
But the word "unexpected" is slightly misleading, considering that as many as four out of every 10 people included in the Bankrate survey reported their immediate family ran into a major, unplanned expense last year. (Video via Bankrate)
