Health-check your finances

Whatever the situation with your finances, it’s good to know where you stand and that you are making the most of what you have.

The health check, a new online money adviser from the Money Advice Service, is for everyone.

The Money Advice Service is an independent advice organisation, here to help everyone understand and manage their money better.

Taking just 10 minutes to answer some straightforward questions on the health check will give you a personalised action plan to help you sort out your money priorities now, and plan for the future – whatever your goals may be.

The interactive health check asks a series of straightforward, multiple-choice questions and uses the answers to produce a personal action plan. For example, the plan will suggest ways to:

l stay on top of your day-to-day money.

l check you have enough emergency savings

l make the most of your savings.

l make sure you can cope with a change in circumstances.

Best of all – it’s free and it’s unbiased.
