What you can do next
Male or female, you probably can’t ever completely wipe out all the nagging anxieties about money that keep you awake at night. But consider the following:
- Sock away three to six months’ worth of income.
- Enroll in accident and disability insurance so you’ll have a source of income should you become injured or sick and unable to work.
- Be an active participant in your short- and long-term financial planning.
- Prepare for retirement TODAY. Research and secure a plan that will help provide you with sufficient resources when you stop working.
If you take a proactive approach and plan now for some of the potential financial pitfalls that could pull you off track, chances are you’ll sleep easier knowing you’ve done everything possible to help ensure your financial wellness and independence.
