Financial Resources - How Can EAP Help?
If you or your family are experiencing financial difficulties, the EAP will help you to assess how to best resolve these problems. The EAP can recommend resources that include internal services, debt management organizations, and state agencies providing financial assistance. EAP clients can benefit from credit counseling, debt and budgeting assistance, tax planning, retirement and college planning questions.
Where does your money go?
The first step in developing a plan to solve financial problems is to get a better picture of how you are spending money now, and where there might be room to spend less. Even though you are doing your best to cope with financial demands, creating an accurate account of where your money goes may surprise you. The non-profit National Endowment for Financial Education has created SmartAboutMoney.org where you will find helpful tools for keeping track of your expenses and plugging spending leaks.
