Protect Your Money in 5 Simple Steps
Protect Your Money in 5 Simple Steps

Everyone works hard to make enough money to meet their needs, provide for the future, and have a little extra to enjoy.  But once the money is made and saved or invested, it can be frightening to wonder what might happen to it.  Scam artists are always on the prowl, the economy fluctuates, and there are countless other reasons to worry.  The following steps can help bring peace of mind and protection regarding financial matters. 

 

Keep Careful Track of Your Money 

Knowledge is power when it comes to money.  Without a plan, cash is spent easily, and investments are made haphazardly.  Create a written, careful budget to know where each dollar is going, and then evaluate it every month with what was spent.  Reconciling the checking account is critical and monitoring the investments regularly will keep surprises at bay and provide a psychological feeling of control that is well-earned. 

 

Stick to the Plan 

Once a plan has been made, do not deviate from it.  A weak plan stringently followed is always going to be better than a fantastic plan that only lasts for a month or two. Consistency is key, especially when it comes to savings and investments.  Plans that rely on interest need time, and a savings account can only grow when it is regularly tended to.  Make a plan that can be followed over the long haul, rather than saving or investing without really committing to it. 

 

Take Online Security Seriously 

Most financial matters are handled over the Internet these days.  This is a good thing for several reasons: simplicity, reliability of digital tracking, and ease of access, to name a few.  But while digital finances may reduce the number of bank robberies, there are security risks just as dangerous.  To protect the money, do not ever respond to phishing emails or other potential scams.  Only use secure networks and websites to handle financial matters.  Be very picky about who gets access to information, and only truly trust the verified experts. 

 

Do Not Overreact 

The economy constantly fluctuates, and the markets react.  This can lead to a rush of enthusiastic trading and buying or panicked selling and withdrawals.  Do not fall for these fluctuations.  Stick to the plan, and if an interesting opportunity presents itself, rely on a trained professional to make an informed decision– not the evening news.  

 

Insure Appropriately 

So many people have watched savings dwindle because of a medical crisis or some other disaster.  Without appropriate insurance coverage, every dollar might have to be paid out of pocket.  It is nice if the money is on hand, but it can wreck a long-term plan.  Life insurance, health insurance, homeowner’s insurance – all of these are essential.  Be sure to have them, and make sure it covers your assets and investments.
