RCN issues coping with drop in income advice

Advice for nurses on coping with a drop in income has been issued by the RCN.

It is designed to help people experiencing financial uncertainty as a result of circumstances including ill health, the loss of a job or fewer shifts. Advice includes how to avoid problems arising from an unexpected income drop.

The RCN Welfare Rights and Guidance Service, which boasts financial advisors, is highlighted.

Detailed advice on negotiating mortgage and rent payments as well as information on introducing credit or payment proposals, individual voluntary arrangements and debt relief orders is given.

Dr Peter Carter, the RCN's chief executive and general secretary, said: ‘This practical guidance is intended to provide some reassurance for any nurses facing financial uncertainty for any reason. It is an invaluable guide for members facing short-term concerns through to longer term difficulties.'
