According to a recent study by employee benefits company, Unum, nearly half of adults had less than $1,000 in savings and about the same number could only pay bills for two months or less if they were to lose their main source of income. In that same study, 49% also experienced anxiety about their finances in the past year.  So, while relaxing and unwinding during your upcoming summer vacation is important, it’s also a good time to do a quick financial checkup for your family.

 

On Friday, June 14th, personal finance expert, Laura Adams will be available for live interviews to discuss everything from saving to spending within reason, and even some tips for new grads and newlyweds. She’ll help walk you through a mid-year money checkup and help get you on track for a strong financial future.

 

Some of her tips include:

  • Check your emergency savings: Having extra money set aside is how to survive an unexpected financial emergency. Build a cash reserve by regularly saving small amounts and increase the rate over time.
  • Plan for the unexpected: Whether it’s a car accident, health problem or death in the family, there are some simple and affordable ways, such as disability and life insurance, to assure you are protected.
  • Have fun without breaking the bank: More than half of American workers end every year with unused vacation days. Be sure to take some time off.  Even on a tight budget, you can get away.
