Are Your Finances Staying on Track?
Would you say your finances are like a well-oiled machine, or a sputtering engine that's running out of steam? Whether you're speeding along on cruise control or navigating a bumpy road, SCCU can help you get on track – and stay there.
Avoiding Financial Traffic Jams
Financial problems don't typically happen in the blink of an eye, but rather add up over time. To avoid the gridlock of financial trouble, watch out for these warning signs:
Unopened mail and bills. If you avoid facing your finances, trouble can be just around the corner. Ignoring bills can lead to accumulated finance charges, late fees and a lower credit score.
Gambling. While trying your luck at the track or casino can be fun, excessive gambling can lead to real financial problems. If you are hiding your gambling from family and friends, or gambling with money you can't afford to lose, you might have a problem.
Living paycheck to paycheck. If there's no money at the end of the month for saving, or you are living above your means, it's probably time to regain control of your finances.
