The COVID pandemic has caused added financial stress from higher grocery, child care, education and other living expenses. During times like this, it is more important than ever to have a family budget that shows where you are spending and how to adjust the budget while maintaining some level of savings.

Like an annual physical examination, professionals can help you set goals and provide other assistance to help you achieve financial fitness. If you have recently experienced a major life event (e.g. marriage, divorce, birth of a child, etc.) or nearing retirement, you are due for a financial check-up.

Take advantage of the county's free resources to review your budget, debt and savings and stay on track to financial well-being.
