It's never too late or too early to plan for your financial future.

Whatever stage in life you find yourself, Ruby has you covered. The following six videos take you through some simple steps that will support you in taking charge of your future today.

Coping with the gender pay gap: carer leave, time off from work and part-time work all leave a gap in many women's future savings. See here for more on how to plug the gap.
