Welcome to the Widgets Ltd

Financial Wellbeing Assessment

This page is the start of your journey to understanding your financial wellbeing and hopefully finding actionable tips that will help you improve.

Widgets Ltd have worked with financialeducation.co.uk to develop a financial wellbeing assessment tool. 

What is the tool?

The tool asks you questions related to 7 areas of your life:

  • Budgeting
  • Debt Management
  • Pay & Allowances
  • Household Spending
  • Health Protection
  • Pension & Savings
  • Later Life Planning

How to do you use it?

You can access the tool further down this page.

The tool takes about 15 minutes to complete, so please make sure you have given yourself this time to work through the questions. 

What happens after I have used it?

Once you have completed the tool you will:

a) Receive a personalised report setting out how you have scored in each of the areas above.

b) Over the course of the next few months receive a series of emails providing you with lots of helpful and actionable advice on steps you can take to improve your financial wellbeing.

Finally, for your own peace of mind, Widgets Ltd will not see your underlying scores or personalised report.  They will only see aggregated data, which in turn will be used to help identify what financial education and support programmes and products could be made available to support employees.  

What other help is there?

Further down this page you can also access:

1) Organisations and websites that can help address the issues raised by the Tool

2) A library of useful information if you want to learn more about any of the topics that are raised in the Tool
