When was the last time you got a checkup? We’re not talking about your yearly physical, but a financial checkup.
What if you could have a specialist assess and help you improve your financial health just as a doctor would check in on your physical health? Financial checkups aren’t something most people do, even though financial health has a large impact on our lives.
During a recent interview with Seattle’s King 5 News, BECU’s Stacey Black spoke about an amazing BECU member perk that many people aren’t aware of— receiving personalized, confidential, one-on-one coaching from a BECU financial health specialist. The best part is, this financial checkup is completely free!
Financial health specialists will guide you through a variety of financial topics, including:
Professional guidance about how to stick to a budget
How to increase your savings
How to reduce your debt.
This conversation, which is tailored to your unique financial situation is worth having. BECU members who take advantage of the program consistently see their savings grow.
Stacey mentions that the BECU health check helps members “close the gap between intentions and actions.” In other words, we all have good ideas about saving our money and planning for our financial future, but it can be so hard to act on these ideas. In less than an hour with a BECU financial expert, you’ll get the support you need to make your financial intentions a reality.
Once you sign up you’ll receive a budget worksheet via email, which will ask you to track and gather your income and expenses to understand your finances as they stand now.
After you complete the budget worksheet, you’ll have your scheduled phone call with a financial health specialist and be on your way to take action on your financial goals.
