Do you pass the stress test?

Do you pass the Covid-19 stress test?

By Orall Cornelius

I was surprised how many people were living on the edge. 1 million people applied for Universal Credit in two weeks of lockdown. That situation must feel scary.


3 month’s savings

Job insecurity from Brexit was a reminder I always need to ask myself, “What would happen if I lost my job?” It’s recommended everyone should have at least 3 month’s worth of bills in savings.

Times like these are exactly the reason I paid off my mortgage. Recessions are a fact of life and I wanted to get rid of that worry. Read about how I did it in my book.


Most people can save

You will say “There’s no way I could put away 3 month’s savings”. But I reckon most people can. How much is your phone bill? Some pay £50+ for their deal. I pay £7 – there’s your savings. See other examples in my post Are You Making Yourself Poorer?


Stuff always happens

People say when all of this is over, things will be different. One thing that won’t change is that stuff happens. So start saving and be prepared.
