NEED ADVICE ON HOW TO HANDLE YOUR EMERGENCY FUNDS OR STIMULUS CHECK?

Lending options and stimulus checks will be a major relief for many but budgeting and managing those emergency funds is key to sustained financial success. Here are some of our tips for maintaining your financial wellness and maximizing your relief funds. 
 
SET A GOAL AND YOUR BUDGET
An honest budget helps you evaluate your needs, set limits on unnecessary spending, and allocate your finances responsibly so your priorities are always in line. Setting a goal is key to an effective budget. If you are able, keep saving for your unique goal or investigate your budget for opportunities to continue investing in your success. 
 
PAY OFF DEBT AND CUT EXPENSES
Some expenses may already be reduced due to changes in daily habits with social distancing in place, however, now may be a great time to see what items are draining your budget unnecessarily such as seldom used subscriptions or high interest debts. Free up your budget by paying down or consolidating high interest cards and cancel services or subscriptions you rarely take advantage of so your money can go where you need it most. 
 
BUILD YOUR SAVINGS OR CRAFT AN EMERGENCY FUND
Now more than ever we see how necessary it is to maintain a well prepared safety net. Don't wait for the next emergency to start planning for your future. Did you know you are not on your own when it comes to saving for the unexpected? We have savings account options to help you start building your emergency fund as well as options for those with existing reserves in place to ensure your money is always working to benefit you, even when you aren't using it. 
 
SUPPORT OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES
While we distance in proximity to one another we are encouraged to appreciate our local businesses and the unique impact they make in our neighborhoods. Support the local businesses that make our communities the best that Colorado has to offer and know that we will make it through this difficult time if we stick together.
