To mark Financial Literacy Month in April, the Postal Service encourages employees to understand their current financial status.
Do any these statements describe your situation?
- Because of my finances, I feel like I will never have the things I want in life.
- I am just getting by financially.
- I am concerned the money I have or will save won’t last.
If so, experts advise you to take a closer look at your finances. A good starting point is to review your credit score, as well as your emergency and retirement savings.
Assessing this information — including the actual value of your retirement savings compared to what’s recommended — can help you determine where you might want to focus your financial goals.
