Extra Time on Your Hands? Use it Wisely to Tackle Your Financial To-Do List

If you're worried about losing your job or seeing your income fall (or if you're just bored!), there's no better time than now to do all you can to solidify your finances.

The coronavirus has completely changed our everyday routines. Many people are working from home instead driving to the office and have a less rushed work/life pace. With this extra time, people are spending it with their families, helping their children get through the most unusual school year they may ever experience, or conquering overdue yard projects. And while it’s more fun to have a Zoom meeting with family members on the West Coast, it’s also a good time to update several financial and legal matters.
