Jean Chatzky: Half of Americans Living Paycheck to Paycheck
Monday, January 27, 2014 7:00 AM

According to financial expert Jean Chatzky, half of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Many simply aren't paying attention to what they are spending, and so they are overspending. Achieving financial security, she says, is as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. Chatzky shares her thoughts on money management with the Cornerstone Credit League in an interview that is now available on Cornerstone’s YouTube channel.

Chatzky is headlining the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation’s FOCUS Summit Feb. 6-7 in Dallas. This two-day summit addresses the financial literacy problem in our country, and is an opportunity for financial education advocates to network, share best practices, learn about available resources, as well as explore proven techniques and strategies for deploying financial education into their local schools and communities. Additional information on the summit is available at

Author of eight books, Chatzky is well known for helping millions of people battle increasingly problematic debt. Leading up to the Feb. 6 summit, Chatzky will also make a special appearance on the Cornerstone Blog Talk Radio Show, “Your Money, Your Matters” tomorrow. Broadcasting every Tuesday, the show addresses financial issues important to consumers. Chatzky will share her five money rules with “Your Money, Your Matters” listeners at 11 a.m. CST. The show can be heard online at  Listeners can also call in at (646) 929-1020.
