How to Review Your Personal Finances

Every year, you should take some time to review your financial strategies and goals. You may want to do this monthly, quarterly or twice a year. October is a great month to do a review. There is still time before the year ends. Additionally, you probably have a good sense of what next year will look like for you and your family.

Here are a few questions to consider:

  • Do you have a working budget in place?
  • Are you aware of all your debts, interest rates and time remaining until your consumer debt is paid off?
  • What are your future goals?
  • Do you have a plan for retirement?
  • Are there any estate planning steps you need to be taking- write or update a will, health care proxy forms, etc?

Stay tuned next week for another round-up of the headlines!
