What is Financial Wellbeing?

Financial Wellbeing is about having a sense of security and confidence that you have enough money to meet your needs. It’s about being in control of your day-to-day finances and having the financial freedom to make choices that allow you to enjoy life a little more. It’s about knowing how to manage your money, giving you control over day-to-day finances and having the capacity to absorb something unexpected happening.  It is about creating a sense of control over the cash you have, and setting goals that can lead to rewards — whether that’s savings for college, a new car or even a new home. Remember, it is not about how much you have, it is about how best to use what you have. A good way to start is to begin. Start Now.
