Understanding your household cash flow is an important part of managing a budget.

Do you spend less than you make? How much income comes into your household monthly?

The Affordable Care Act requires you to disclose your income if you want to participate in the Federal tax subsidy. We now use the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to determine where your income falls based on your household size. How many people make up your household? Who lives with you, or maybe we just look at your tax return. Is your income under 400% of the Federal Poverty Level? If yes, the California Exchange can benefit you. The Federal tax subsidy can help offset your insurance premium.

Did you know that disagreements over money is the number two reason people get divorced?
