More than half have been anxious about their money since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a NextAdvisor survey, and 54% of unemployed workers said they had no plan to cope with the end of enhanced unemployment benefits when they expired in July. 

The third quarter of the year has ended with unemployment at a relatively high 7.9%, and Congress has yet to reach a deal on the next coronavirus relief package. 

No new stimulus checks have been authorized. An eviction cliff looms as mortgage forbearance options begin to expire. More than a trillion dollars in student loan debt will become due again in January.  A majority of households with children are juggling financial stress and caregiving while many schools across the country remain closed, according to a recent survey. 

So what’s the plan? 

“For a lot of people who didn’t think that politics matter or policies matter, I think we’re learning now more than ever that they do. The
