  • The Financial Wellbeing Scales will ask some general questions about your financial experiences, past and present, and about how finances make you feel. Based on your responses, you will receive a Financial Wellbeing Score between 1 and 100 (from low to high financial wellbeing).

  • How well do the following statements describe you or your situation?

  • When it comes to how you feel about your finances, how much do you agree or disagree with the following statements?

  • In the last 12 months, how difficult was it for you

  • How often do the following statements apply to you?

The Financial Wellbeing Scales are the result of collaboration between the Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research at The University of Melbourne and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.*

Both organisations have made the specifications of the scales available for use by others to improve understanding and measurement of financial wellbeing.
