Financial Wellness

Being financially strong just makes sense (and cents!) Committing to creating a financially healthy lifestyle gives you peace of mind, resilience to enjoy life with less financial worry, and the freedom to pursue long term opportunities.

Are you financially well?

Most people find themselves in one of these three categories:

  • Financially Vulnerable – Struggling with all, or nearly all aspects of their financial lives.
  • Financially Coping – Struggling with some, but not necessarily all financial aspects. While getting by month to month, one or two financial missteps could cause someone who is financially coping to become financially vulnerable. On the other hand, making small changes can make big improvements.
  • Financially Healthy – Spending, saving, borrowing, and planning in a way that allows people to be resilient, meet financial goals, and pursue opportunities over time.

If you are concerned that your financial lifestyle may be less than perfect, don’t worry! This has been true for practically all of us at one time or another. In fact, a recent study showed that over 40% of those surveyed did not have enough in savings to cover three months of living expenses. Over 30% are unable to pay all of their bills on time each month.* The good news is that change for the good is possible. And any change, big or small, can create improvements in your financial well-being.
