“A general definition of financial fitness is to have the money you need, when you need it. A more detailed definition would include to live within your means, not be in debt, and to have savings.”
We’re excited to announce our partnership with GreenPath! They’re a national nonprofit organization focused on helping people like our members achieve financial wellness.
