My unemployment ends in one month and there are no extended benefits for me because the institution I used to work for is a non-profit. The unemployment benefits they provide are not under the State of California. So I’ve been saving my pocket change. Health insurance is my biggest concern and besides rent, my biggest expense. I’ve applied for a state program for hard to insure folks like me, there is a waiting list, hopefully it will move quickly.
No one would describe me as being financially savvy. I could write a poem about it, but to actually sit and crunch numbers has never been my strong suit. Let’s just say, after being laid off, I’ve given this area of my life a lot more attention. I found this great site called SingleMomFinancialHelp.com .
