As a woman entering her 20s eight years ago, I wish someone had sat me down and given me a list of money tips for women in their 20s. Unfortunately, I learned mine the hard way, and suffered some financial issues when I didn’t necessarily have to. Read my money tips for women in their 20s based off my experience, and be sure to share any you have learned as well.

1. Get Health Insurance

One of the first money tips for women in their 20s that I hope everyone will listen to, is to get a job that has health insurance. Sure, you may not need it now, but when an emergency comes up, you’ll wish you had. I danced around this for years, waitressing and working freelance jobs without insurance. I ran the risk for years with success from no injuries or illness, yet four years ago, when I had to go to the hospital, I was in trouble. The money came out of my taxes for three years because I had no insurance to pay for it at the time. Get health insurance, preferably from a company you work with if you can. If not, be sure to sign up through healthcare.gov for very affordable health insurance that the government now provides for everyone, regardless of income.
