3 Beginner Financial Tasks You Can Address in Under 30 Minutes Each
There are so many financial tasks that we know we should do, but who has the time to remember them, let alone do them. But now that we are socially distant, what’s the excuse? Here are a few beginner tasks you can complete in quarantine to jumpstart your financial to-do list.
Examine your credit report. Reviewing your credit reports will help you find errors and fraud before they damage your credit. In response to the outbreak of COVID 19, three major U.S. credit reporting agencies are providing free weekly credit reports online through April 2021 at AnnualCreditReport.com.
Redeem your credit card rewards. Do you have a cash-back credit card? Log in to your account or reward system and redeem your benefits. If your rewards program offers instant retrieval, consider signing up so that you never have to do this again
Catalog your wallet. Create a record or a list of your important cards so that you have documentation of your account numbers and who to call if your wallet is stolen or lost. Reserve any cards (Social Security Card, Voters Registration Card, etc.) that you don’t use frequently.
