Budgeting / Finances
How EAP Can Help...
Whether you are tackling debt or trying to save for a home, college or retirement, the most important thing is to get started. Creating a budget is the first step. Creating a budget - and sticking to it - lets you have money for the things you want. A sensible budget allows you take control of your money and to plan for the future. Your local EAP Coordinator can provide you with information to get you started.
Changing deeply rooted financial habits, even bad habits, is hard work. If financial problems are causing you stress, your EAP Coordinator can meet with you personally to assess your situation, provide you with educational information and support, and if necessary, refer you to an appropriate resource for additional help. Sometimes financial problems are the result of more serious underlying issues such as depression, substance abuse, or problem gambling. If this is the case, your EAP Coordinator will work with you to find an appropriate provider who can help you resolve these issues.
