How Financial Literacy Affects Your Income, Debt and Wealth Levels

How Financial Literacy Affects Your Income, Debt and Wealth Levels

Chloe Harris - Featured writer

Financial literacy is understanding money: how it’s earned, spent, and grown. It also extends on how money is used to help others. Research indicates that financial literacy has a critical correlation to income, debt, wealth accumulation, and retirement planning.

Credit Capital’s senior credit advisor, Alistaire Claire, emphasises its importance,” Learning and applying basic finance concepts in your everyday life is the way to financial security. Without the right knowledge, it’s easy to commit huge financial mistakes. It is through lack of financial literacy that people fall for fraud investment schemes and credit card debts. Just knowing the basics can provide you with a level of protection.”

How to Take Control of Your Credit Score

How to Take Control of Your Credit Score

If you’re planning on buying a new car through finance, or you’ve finally saved up enough money to move out of your parents’ house and apply for a mortgage, then you need to start building a good credit score. 

Your credit score is essentially a bunch of statistics based on all your financial decisions and hiccups over the last 6 years. In today’s world, it is all too easy for banks to access this report. This makes it all too easy for them to reject your loan application based on a few regretful money mishaps.

 According to financial experts Empowered Finance, “This is because lenders believe they might be taking a higher risk when lending to you. This means your loan application will either be flat out rejected or you will be expected to pay a much higher interest rate.”

Patrick Allen Boon jailed for murdering Fred Tuffs on job site off Culgoora Rd between Narrabri and Wee Waa in 2017

A concreter who murdered his boss in the break room of a local worksite with "savagery and ferocity" has been jailed for at least 13 years and 10 months.

Queensland man Patrick Allen Boon struck grandfather Frederick Tuffs over the head with a sledgehammer several times and then continued the bashing with a wrench near Narrabri, on June 13, 2017.

The 57-year-old site manager died in hospital the next morning.

Boon, who pleaded guilty to murder in May, was on Friday jailed for 18 years and six months, with a minimum term of 13 years and 10 months.

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

STATE WIDE ‘STAY AT HOME’ A MESSAGE FROM ROY BUTLER, MEMBER FOR BARWON

Over the weekend I caught an interview with one of our small business owners in Barwon, she said words to the effect of ‘if we survived the worst drought on record, huge dust storms, and a mice plague what’s a little lockdown?’
I know we’ve been battered over the last few years, and we were just starting to come through it all – farming was back, people had a bit of money to spend in town, and our grass was getting greener – this COVID outbreak has come at a time when times were getting better.
