What is financial wellness and why is it important?

Financial security means that an individual has enough money to meet basic needs such as food, clothing, and housing. It also means working toward financial goals and leading a rewarding life. People with arthritis may face barriers to financial security. While some manage well at work with little to no additional support, others may need to leave (or may not even be able to enter) the workforce to address their symptoms. In fact, working-aged Canadians with arthritis are twice as likely to report that they are not participating in the workforce compared to their peers without arthritis. Assistive devices, medication, and therapy are added expenses that may threaten someone’s financial well-being.
