What is Talk Money Week?

Talk Money Week is taking place from 8th – 12th November 2021 and is the annual event all about getting the public talking about money. The week is overseen by the Money and Pension Service – a national body bringing together the Money Advice Service, the Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wide into one single organisation.

Talk Money Week shines a light on the fantastic work thousands of organisations are doing to improve people’s financial wellbeing.

Throughout the week, organisations will be engaging with their customers, showcasing their services, and leading the charge to improve financial wellbeing in the UK.

The aim of Talk Money Week is to empower the public to break the stigma around money. The week provides a platform to have a conversation about money – from pocket money to pensions – between families and friends, at work or at school or any other walk of life. The goal is to turn talking about money from one of the UK’s least favourite topics into something commonplace.


Why Talk Money Week?

Talking openly about money is vitally important for our health, wealth and relationships. Too many people across the UK are struggling with their finances facing challenges managing their money day to day, in planning and preparing for life events, and for the longer term including retirement. These are complex problems which can lead to widespread impacts on individual health and wellbeing, as well as wider communities and the UK economy.

Money also remains a taboo topic in society with too many still struggling to have open conversations about finances over half of UK adults prefer not to talk to their friends and family about financial issues so as not to worry them.

There are some truly shocking statistics when it comes to money and finances the UK:

  • Only 38% of 7-17 year olds say they learned about how to manage money at school.
  • 11.5m adults have less than £100 in savings and investments.
  • 9m adults often use a credit card, overdraft or borrow money to buy food or pay bills because they have run short of money.
  • 22m working age adults do not feel that they understand enough about pensions to make decisions about saving for retirement.
  • 5m older people in retirement are not satisfied with their overall financial circumstances.
