financial tips for you to smoothly navigate through your finances
  1. Go digital!

First and foremost, we would advice you not to go to your bank time and again during this crisis. There is a reason why social distancing is being practiced currently and you must follow the norms too. If you want to make any transfers, banking transactions and any other such tasks, just make use of the mobile banking option or the banking app. Since the Government health guidelines are urging us to follow social distancing for avoiding the COVID-19, it is better that you use your digital wallets. Just avoid going to ATMs or Banks altogether for any financial use or need. Utilize your cards, wallets, UPIs, or online banking for managing investments and making payments. It is advised not to use cash so keep ATM visits to a bare minimum. See, even in the lockdown, finances run your home. So, money is important, but the choice of using hard cash or going digital is in your hands. So, choose safety first and go for electronic money.

2. Always keep an Emergency Fund:

Well, you remember our ancestors used to give so much emphasis on the importance of saving. Most of us would still be able to recall our grandmothers telling us to save as much as we can for any unforeseen circumstances. And, we as carefree teenagers used to mock and say just live for today. Well, guess what? Now their words seem pretty wise and perfect. How we wish that we had kept a special emergency fund aside!

But even if not, even if you have been a hand-to-mouth kind of a person depending on the regular salary to arrive every month for conducting your expenditure. Worry not! It is never too late to start saving. Be thankful you realised now and just move ahead with perseverance. We understand that an emergency is very unpredictable, can happen at any moment, and becomes a task to manage. But, with great difficulty comes great courage and knowledge for the future.

Start saving as much as you can from now! Just prioritize your lists of necessities and don’t go even a pin overboard to what you need at the moment. If you don’t require a think do not purchase it. Even if it costs a bare minimum, just skip it until it moves to the necessity list. When you do not spend on the little unimportant things, you will eventually end up not spending at all on the things that are just pleasing to the eye and are not counted in essentials. Maintain a specific budget and just stick to it no matter what. Even if you are tempted for an expensive thing, the best choice currently is to let it go, just because you might need that money in the future. And when that time comes, you wouldn’t want to borrow from others, right? So, just avoid unnecessary expenses at all costs, and maintain an emergency fund just for the sake of future. You do not know till how much time this scenario is going to go on, so better be on the safe side.


Just by controlling needless expenses, maintaining a proper budget, and spending only what you actually need at the moment, can help you to create this emergency fund which you will thank yourself for. It is never pleasing to ask or borrow money from people, and by doing this, you can avoid that situation altogether. 

3. Insurance Cover:

Remember, we used to hear that be prepared for the worst, but hope for the best. This is the time to put that into practice. We are not saying that you might get contract the COVID-19 sitting at home, but as of now, the circumstances that we are seeing, anything could happen. And why not prep yourself for the worst? At least then, when something better will happen, you will be happier. And if not, you will be prepared for the nastiest situations. Being flexible is the key, and whatever happens you must be prepared for it. Checking your insurance cover is one such thing.

Insurance Cover

So, you got a health insurance in hand, just go through all the details of it. If you are finding it difficult to understand, call your insurance provider, he/she will be able to help you by answering your queries and letting you know the terms of the insurance. Anybody can contract the COVID-19 these days, and it is here to stay. So, what if any such situation arises for you or your family? What are the health coverage benefits? How much will it cost you for any critical illness? Could you increase your premium amount by opting for more coverage? Being aware of all these queries and getting appropriate answers for them is very important. Now when you and family are fine, be aware of all these aspects so that even if something happens, there is no panic as you are well prepared. Remember, this is not a pessimistic behaviour, but the thought process of a well-prepared person. Make sure that you have proper health coverage for your family. You need to do an honest assessment for the same.

See, government authorities are doing their best for providing facilities at government hospitals for the infected people. However, you can just imagine the rush in government hospitals. Let’s be honest to ourselves and be aware as the news is flashing about the shortage of beds. To avoid such a type of rush, you are required to take a health insurance cover so that you can opt for hospitalization at any of the costly private hospitals without having to worry about your finances. And as a matter of fact, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) have asked the insurers to expeditiously concentrate on the claims for treatment of the COVID-19.

When you take an insurance cover, you avoid the financial distress too that is involved in unfortunate casualties because of outbreak of the COVID-19. The main purpose of insurance is to provide financial assistance to people in unfortunate situations for helping them to meet their life goals without facing any kind of financial barrier. The costs of hospitals these days are huge; it costs a bomb when a person gets admitted. The cost of the entire treatment too may be way more that what was expected. Sometimes, it is even thrice the expected treatment cost. In such situations, due to money problems, we must not be forced to let go off a treatment that could save our life or that of our loved ones. Hence, insurance cover is very essential to not let money come in the way of good health.
