Sources of advice for financial issues
There are many people you can contact for advice about financial issues.
Where a query concerns a particular financial product that a person affected by cancer already has, the most appropriate source of help will often be the provider of that product.
Where the query is more general, it’s usually better to go to an independent source rather than a provider or its agent. For example, for advice about investments, it’s usually better to go to a financial adviser, who can consider all the products on the market, rather than a bank, which will make recommendations only from its own limited range of products or services.
Similarly, for debt advice, it’s better to use one of the independent, free organisations, such as Citizens Advice, rather than a debt management company whose main purpose is selling its own fee-charging debt-repayment plans.
Don't forget you can call the Macmillan Support Line for advice about the practical issues you might be dealing with, and for support with any emotional impact.
