Financial Well-Being

Financial well-being involves learning budget management in order to maintain a sustainable lifestyle while also learning to plan for the future through savings and investments. 

  • Budget Management/Budgeting: A budget, simply put, is a plan for your money. This plan requires tracking of income and expenses, and ensuring that all expenses are paid on time and hopefully some could be saved in case of an emergency or for a larger purchase.
  • Retirement & Investment: A popular way to gain financial security is by saving money and investing it. It’s not an easy task for most people. Most literature says pay yourself first. This means via the budgeting process, determine how much you can place into a special account first; then pay your bills. Setting goals about saving can be a great motivator. Gaining knowledge regarding different retirement options and college savings accounts can also be a great motivator to save.
