We know that money and financial concerns continue to be top of mind for many of you and your loved ones. We also know that having conversations about money can be uncomfortable – but it doesn’t need to be.

Each November, Talk Money Week offers an opportunity to be more open and start building money conversations into everyday life. This includes ensuring you know about the financial benefits you have access to, and tapping into these benefits when you need them.

Understand the financial benefits available to you:

Did you know you have access to our financial wellbeing provider, Salary Finance? This includes options to:

  • Borrow affordably through salary: A lower-rate loan could help you save money by paying off more expensive debt or allow you to pay less interest if you need to borrow money for a car, home improvement or unexpected expense. Representative Rate 13.9% APR (fixed)
  • Access your pay when you need it: the option and flexibility to access some of your earned pay before payday so you don’t need to wait if something unexpected happens
  • Save easily through salary: With Salary Finance you have the option to save directly from your salary
  • Learn better money habits: the Learn platform offers educational resources in all shapes and sizes to suit different financial situations and learning styles.

Beyond your benefits:

Being aware of the financial support available to you can sometimes go beyond your employee benefits – did you know nearly £19 billion in financial support goes unclaimed each year? Visit Turn2Us and learn more about what help you might be entitled to.

Look ahead:

It can be easy to let planning for the future fall down our list of priorities, especially when our current financial situation seems to be changing day-by-day. But it’s important to remember that improving your financial knowledge is your own secret superpower. Whether it’s each day, each week, or each month, make sure you carve out the time to work on improving how you think about money and building long-term habits.
