If your living costs are about the same as your earnings, it may only take one unexpected event to put your finances out of balance. An unforeseen car repair, job loss, termination of your tenancy, death in the family or a surprise wedding invitation could present you with expenses that you haven’t budgeted for.
There are ways you can plan ahead and protect yourself from possible financial hardship when something like this happens. This includes having an emergency savings fund that you regularly contribute to; having adequate insurance cover
; and ensuring your will is up to date
If something unexpected happens and you cannot cover the extra costs involved then there may be help available. Your local CAB
can help you find out your eligibility for financial support
, as well as how to get help if you are in debt
Our service is free.
