Solutions to Living Paycheck to Paycheck
Tired of Living Paycheck to Paycheck? We Can Help!
Hundreds of members responded to our recent Financial Wellness Survey, and the results are in: nearly half of our members are frustrated with the feeling of living paycheck to paycheck. One member said, “Whenever I get ahead there’s always some sort of emergency, whether it’s car troubles or vet bills, and they all cost money that I don’t have.” So many others echoed this sentiment. We feel your pain!
