Planning your finances

A cancer diagnosis can impact on your finances. We know that reviewing your personal finances can be a challenge and more so when you’re affected by cancer. 

You may be concerned about how cancer will affect your mortgage, insurance or pension. Or that you’ll have to spend any savings you have if you need to stop working. If your income has changed, you may be worried about how you will manage your day-to-day spending.

You can use our handy budgeting tool to plan for your bills and other expenses and work out how you can make your outgoings match your income.

We can help you identify what areas of your spending you may have to manage or what options are open to you if you need to make changes to maximise your income or reduce your spending. We want to make it clear and simple so that you can make decisions about your personal finances at this difficult time.

Whatever your needs, we will support you to make good financial decisions. For more information or to review your budget plan, please contact the Financial Guidance team, free, on 0808 808 00 00.
