Take Control of Your Financial Future in the Month of April

April is Financial Literacy Month and there is no better time than now to take control of your financial future.

The current statistics are startling – according to a recent survey, more than 50 percent of working Americans have less than $1,000 saved for the future, and that percentage is growing.*

If you need help reaching your financial goals, these three tips can help you get started:

  • Stop living paycheck to paycheck. Next time you’re paid, pay yourself first. Allocate at least 10 percent (or more) of your earnings into an emergency savings account. Eliminate all non-essentials until you’ve accrued at least three months worth of your salary.
  • Pay off credit card debt. If you have credit card debt, you’ll want to move toward the habit of paying off all balances in full every month. Depending on your situation, you may have to pay down the debt until you have it paid off. A good way to do this is by using the debt stacking method where you make consistent payments on all your credit card debts and don’t accrue any new debt until you have all your debts paid off.
  • Meet with a financial representative.** Contact a Primerica representative for a complimentary, confidential and customized Financial Needs Analysis that will help you identify your personalized financial goals. By working closely with one of our representatives, you’ll have the information you need to examine your current financial situation and form strategies to help you reach your goals.
