What is financial security?

Financial security is a state of being. When you are financially secure, you are prepared for the unexpected, know where your money is going, and have plans for the future. In practice, achieving financial security means different things to different people. The key is conscientiously managing your money with an eye for the big picture. Life happens, and you’ll find that you can better handle sudden changes and take advantage of opportunities when your finances are under control.
