Financial Well-being

Financial well-being is an important part of your overall personal well-being and can be achieved regardless of income.

Being financially well means you can meet your current and ongoing financial obligations, feel secure in your financial future, and are able to make choices that allow you to enjoy life – in other words, financial freedom.

However, data shows that personal finances continue to be a leading cause of stress for many Americans. Financial stress occurs when there is uncertainty around finances, a sense of worry about the future, and a lack of security. Like most types of stress, this can impact your:

  • Ability to sleep
  • Physical health
  • Emotional health
  • Relationships
  • Performance at work
  • Family life

If you have or are currently experiencing financial stress, you’re not alone – there are many resources and professionals available to help and it’s going to be okay. Getting to a place where you are financially well takes time but it’s never too late to start thinking about your finances.
