Top tips from financial wellbeing

Our financial wellbeing team has put together some tips to follow to get the most from your money:

1. Create a budget you’re going to stick to

If you’ve had problems budgeting in the past, now is the time to plan. Be clear about what money you have coming in, what needs to be paid and what you have left. The Money Advice Service offers a free online budgeting tool to help you get started. 

Our financial wellbeing team can also give you budgeting advice and support, get in touch through the MyAster app or on 0333 400 8222.

2.  Check you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to 

Our Money Advice Tool can help you check that you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to. There is £12.4 billion of benefits that go unclaimed each year. This includes unclaimed council tax support, Universal Credit and Pension Credit.

3. Start saving

The Money Advice Service can help you plan how much you need to save to reach your goal.

4.  Pick up the phone if you need support

Although we can make great plans, life can have other ideas for us. Please call us if you have any concerns and we’ll try and help. We have a team of expert benefit advisers who can help you, just call 0333 400 8222 or visit MyAster to speak to us.
