A thousand people were monitored for mental and physical health from birth through age 38. The conclusion was that a credit score is a strong predictor for health status.
A low credit score is strongly associated with poor cardiovascular health. It’s common sense that economic and personal stress, poor diet, health, employment, education and relationship issues contribute to the equation.
A credit score may reflect impulsive, addictive and high-risk behavior.
It’s telling that one score could so accurately describe a person, but finances seem to be related to everything. Money makes it easier for us to take advantage of opportunities and resources to make the most of ourselves. Plan carefully.
