Credit Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

January 11, 2018

Keeping a tab on financial health can be tricky at times. Erin Lowry, Author of "Broke Millennial", joined us at the New York Stock Exchange to share some tips for getting personal finances in order.

Only 12% of millennials feel prepared for their financial future. Lowry breaks down steps people can take to improve their financial health. She recommends using the app Turbo, which gives you a holistic approach to keeping track of your financials.

55% of people served by Turbo don’t feel credit score is a good indicator of financial standing. Lowry says it’s a piece of the puzzle, but it’s not the end-all-be-all. She adds that the debt-to-income ratio is a good metric to go alongside credit score. Lowry says Intuit’s Turbo app is a good option for staying on top of personal finances in a digital and mobile age.
