Unplanned job loss or unemployment


This online library will help you think about important financially focused questions that you should be asking.

It will also direct you to financial information that may be relevant to you and your current situation or life experiences.

What is a Life Experience?

We often talk about the big moments in our lives as ‘Life Events’ or ‘Life Stages’.

Life events are important moments in our lives but are not always a once off event,
but rather a period in our lives that we are experiencing.

These times in our lives are called ‘Life Experiences’.
You can live through more than one experience at a time and each
experience could go on for a long time. 

Most people may not live through some of the life experiences at all and will experience
them at different times of their lives -
there is no specific order (except for death).


Unemployment makes you wonder how you are going to survive financially, what you will do if you become ill or lose your home. Focus on what your next steps should be.
