Planning and managing your finances
Cancer can affect your finances. Planning, managing and understanding your finances will help you.

A cancer diagnosis can have a negative impact on your finances. At a time when you may have extra expenses, you may also need to take time off work. But this doesn’t always mean your income will completely stop. Assessing your situation is the first step in planning ahead to meet your needs.

Employers should make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to help you continue working. You, and your partner, relatives or carer(s) may have the right to request flexible working. You might also be eligible for sick pay or state benefits. Check with your HR department to find out if they have their own scheme. If you have been absent for at least four consecutive days, you may qualify for Statutory Sick Pay.

Considering your main financial needs will help focus your priorities. These will be different for everyone and may change with time. For many people, managing debts, buying a home, saving for retirement or setting aside emergency funds are important. Call our financial guides on 0808 808 00 00 for personal advice on your individual situation.
