Make An Appointment! Review your financial health

When was the last time that you made an appointment...
to check on your financial health?

It is a good idea to check up regularly on your financial health. This allows you to evaluate how you are managing your money on a regular basis. The CNNMoney website offers a free and easy to use Financial Health Calculator. In less than 10 minutes, you can review your progress in personal finance areas, including debt, housing, emergency savings, investments, and retirement savings.
When you have completed the financial health test, you will receive a letter grade based on the rules of thumb used to determine "optimal" financial health. Any areas that are lacking will be colored red to allow you to see at a glance what areas you may want to review and reevaluate. If your financial health is not where you would like it to be, you can find some helpful tips available on the website. Even if you don't know exact numbers, this quick calculator can help you become more aware of your personal financial situation and set appropriate financial goals.
