Take control of your finances

It’s all too easy to let things slide, from Christmas debt to Easter/summer holiday debt so that you’re never really out of the red. But it’s time to stop burying your head in the sand and take control of your money. With a little help from online tools, phone or even face-to-face advice, MoneyForce and The Royal British Legion can help you get MoneyFit.


Take control online

MoneyForce has a range of tools – starting with

  • Budget Planner – input your income, fixed and transient expenses and saving commitments and the planner will work out how much you have left. It’s a good starting point for everyone.

    Feedback from serving personnel

    MoneyForce showed me exactly what I need to address to progress.

  • MoneyFit Challenge - Try any or all of the five key modules, Budgeting, Debt, Savings, Planning and Protection and get your personalised Action Plan at the end of each module.
  • Credit Card Calculator – Reducing your card debt is the quickest way to get MoneyFit. Once you’ve done your budget, you’ll know if there’s any spare cash to pay off your card debt sooner.
  • GoalSavers – Whatever you’re saving for, holiday, wedding or other family celebration, and even next Christmas, we’ve got a GoalSaver for that!
