Are you money smart?

Are you money smart?
Debbie McTaggart

So much emphasis is put on paying down debt and increasing your super, but when you’re managing a tight household budget, this can be easier said than done. However, MoneySmart’s Money Health Check will help you highlight the areas which need urgent attention.

If you’ve got ten minutes to spare then it’s worthwhile working through the simple questions in MoneySmart’s Money Health Check. The online questionnaire asks about your employment, superannuation, asset protection, estate planning, debts and investments and aims to tell you which areas are tracking nicely and which need some attention.

Once you have completed all the questions, you can ask for a full report, which will highlight the areas on which you need to concentrate and give you smart tips on what to do next.
