Woo-hoo, $1,200! Now What?April 26, 2020
Millions of Americans will soon have the joy of depositing an extra $1,200 into their bank account. This is part of the financial relief package provided by the federal government to help individuals during this difficult time.
You may want to think carefully about how to use the extra money. For example, if you have lost your job or if you feel your job is at risk, you may want to use the money to cover basic expenses or put it aside in a short term “rainy day” fund. But if your employment is stable, you may want to consider a longer term approach to grow your wealth.
