Ep 76: Life Happens. Financial Coping Strategies With Jeanne Thompson

Starting a new job, buying a house, getting married, getting divorced, having a baby or having a baby move back home — all of these events not only shake up your life, but your finances, too. And, as it turns out, research from Fidelity shows not all events are created equal when it comes to the impacts they have on your physical and financial health. Fidelity’s senior vice president of Thought Leadership, Jeanne Thompson, takes us through the research, how it specifically applies to women and the two moves that are proven to improve your overall well-being no matter what. We answer your questions on the “marriage penalty” for taxes, interest on savings accounts and curbing impulse buys. And then we close the show with some interesting research on materialism. Please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, and share this show with someone who’s going through a major life change right now.
