January is National Financial Wellness Month

Are you financially fit?

Common New Year’s resolutions focus on personal wellness, like new diets and exercise routines. But what about your financial wellness? Do you have an emergency fund? A plan to pay down debt or save for a mortgage down payment?

January is designated as National Financial Wellness Month, and it is a great time to pay attention to the health of your finances, as well as your body and diet. The 2016 Federal Reserve Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households stated that 44 percent of adults surveyed would not be able to cover an emergency expense of just $400 without borrowing money or selling something to come up with cash.

Just like a new health regimen starts one step at a time, so does your journey to financial wellness. Your library and other organizations are here to help you through the process.

Please join us on Tuesday, January 16th, at 6:00 p.m. as Troy Vincent from Edward Jones will be here to answer questions and tell us how to get on the road to financial independence.

Please stop by or call the library (814-697-6691) to register for this program.

This program is free and open to the public.
