Getting started

The best way to start is to have a plan.

If you are going on holiday, heading off on an OE or deciding on a career, you need a plan so you know where you are going and how you are going to get there. The same goes for life.

Having a plan helps you set out the goals and objectives you want to achieve while also preparing for those unforeseen events that happen while you're on the journey.

Planning now gives you choices in the future – how you'll deal with setbacks and how you'll enjoy your retirement years.

Getting started is always the hard part, but the Commission has made it easy for you to begin with a number of resources both here and on our other website, Sorted.

Having a plan means you'll know what money you've got and where it's going. This knowledge means you can make better decisions and you'll feel more in control of your money – and your financial wellbeing.
