myFinancial Life Planning™ Assessment

Welcome to the myFinancial Life Wellness™ Assessment

The term “financial wellness” has emerged in recent years as a descriptor of an individual’s overall financial health and well-being. However, financial wellness consists of more than just our perceptions and feelings about our own financial health. The concept of authentic financial wellness is measured by a combination of factors including the overall satisfaction with your current financial situation, actual financial behaviors (i.e., budgeting, saving, debt reduction), your money mindset, financial knowledge, and your financial "breathing room" (a.k.a. "objective financial status").

How would you rate your overall financial wellness? This isn’t a question that we normally put much thought into (or feel comfortable sharing with others). However, increasing the awareness of your financial wellness is an important step on the path to financial independence – no matter how you define the concept.

Here is how the myFinancial Life Planning™ assessment works:

This is the first step in assessing your overall financial health and finding ways to improve different components of authentic financial wellness. Simply answer a series of questions and get your score and personalized results. It takes approximately 7 to 10 minutes to complete the assessment. A brief summary of your results will appear just seconds after completing your questions.

How many people live in your household and share income with you?
Note: This may include you, dependent children, and anyone you support financially

What is your total annual household income (before any taxes or deductions)?
Suppose you were to sell all of your major possessions (including your home), turn all of your investments and other assets into cash, and pay all of your debts. Would you be in debt, break even, or have something left over?
How long would your savings last in the event of an emergency?
As a percentage of income, how much is your household currently saving?
Your debt-to-income ratio is all your monthly debt payments divided by your gross monthly income.  For example, if you pay $1500 a month for your mortgage and another $100 a month for an auto loan and $400 a month for the rest of your debts, your monthly debt payments are $2000. ($1500 + $100 + $400 = $2,000.) If your gross monthly income is $6000, then your debt-to-income ratio is 33 percent. ($2000 is 33% of $6000.)

What is your current estimated Debt-to-Income ratio?
