Press release: Free online health check helps the nation kick its money into shape

1 February 2012

Our online health check is helping the Nation get its money into shape - to date, the online planner has provided over 400,000 people with an immediate route to start taking control of their money. Over half (55%) of all visits have resulted in an action plan, and we have seen over 75,000 online actions straight after completion of the health check.

But initial analysis reveals a worrying gap in the UK’s ‘money mind-set’. While the health check may be prompting people to take control of their money matters, some responses to the health check questions reveal a worrying mismatch between peoples’ definition of keeping ‘on top of’ their money matters and the reality of their financial situation.
