What is a daily money manager?

A daily money manager (DMM) is a professional who helps clients who are too busy or have difficulty managing their personal finances.  DMMs provide a broad range of services – from bill paying and general financial organizing to assistance with the complexities of medical insurance.

 

Who uses a daily money manager?

Lots of people.  Typically, DMMs help:

  • Seniors who are finding it difficult to keep up with their daily finances

  • Adult children responsible for their elderly parents’ finances

  • Busy professionals who would like someone to deal with their daily personal finances

  • People with physical or mental disabilities who need personal finance assistance

 

How does this work?

Our first meeting is free.  It typically takes place in your home so that you can tell me what you need, I can see your paperwork, and together we can devise a plan to move forward.  Family members and other professional advisors are welcome to attend.
