Fitness is more than physical. Even more than emotional. When you’re financially fit, you have control of your spending and expenses. That means less stress, less worry and more assurance that you’ll be comfortable now and in the future.
Tips from our Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
For more information, visit the My Money section of the MyLifeValues EAP website. Tips there include:
- Have a safety net of cash in the bank that will cover your expenses for six months to one year
- Re-evaluate your expenses on a regular basis to make sure you’re putting enough into your emergency account
- Pay off your credit cards in full every month
- Put aside a set amount of money each month toward larger purchases you’re planning
- If you get a raise, put some extra money into savings with each paycheck
You can also call the EAP at 1-866-252-4468 to speak to a financial adviser at no cost.
