I am already grateful

I can’t speak highly enough of Daphne, Darren and the rest of the team who have been reaching out helping me onboard with this service. Financial stress until now has ruled my frame of mind, I have only begun just shy of two weeks ago with MyBudget but already they have made such a difference. Show reply

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. THIS COMPANY IS A SCAM

Couldn't even save 5% of my net pay and then wanted to take over $3000 of my money.

MY BUDGET IS A SCAM, AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

IF I COULD RATE A ZERO I WOULD. THIS COMPANY SUCKS.

Absolutely life changing

I have ADHD and Bipolar disorder and have spent much of my adult life trying to learn to get better with finances, but it got to a point where I had to recognise that this skillset was somewhat beyond my control.

After seeing that MyBudget was a NDIS participant, I felt comfortable in reaching out for financial assistance. I have already been assisted in building a budget, have a growing savings and have peace of mind that I won’t continue to forget payments.

I could not be happier, and my life is so much better for this. Show reply

Saved from bankruptcy

In 2018 I found myself in financial hardship, I was close to bankruptcy and loosing my home. I went to My Budget and with no judgement from them, they were able to work out a budget and talk to all of the financial institutions for me. This took all the pressure off of me. Within 12 months, all of my debt was paid off. My Budget did the hard work for me. 2024, I’m still here with My Budget. I have a healthy savings account, I am in credit with all of my bills. I have no debt. I will never leave My Budget, they saved me from something I could not get myself out of. I cannot recommend My Budget highly enough. Show reply

Very positive experience over the years

Very happy with MyBudget, we have been with them for a few years now, and don't know how we would've coped without their help in managing our pensions, and paying bills on time. I am disabled and my husband cannot cope with stress, so it has been a huge help for us to alleviate the worry of budgeting on a low income, and not having this stress to deal with. The money managers are always patient, polite and friendly and very helpful, thank you MyBudget for a brilliant service Show 2 replies

Really good, worth the setup teething

Very much recommend. The fact that someone else can do allll the math, all the testing/checking and planning and, still make sure I can afford all I need, pay any bills etc etc etc is very welcome!

Takes a bit of getting used to, and learning ‘the system’ lingo like how not to ‘check’ but ‘test’ what’s available in your budget for something unplanned or a bigger future cost. All worth it though, and doesn’t take long to catch on.

Only improvement I’d appreciate would be having different setup/admin fees depending on what the client needs. For example, I need the math and the planning I don’t need someone else to pay my bills for me, or deal with debt. Show reply

My budget. Managing my cash flow which massively lowered my stress levels

Darryn, Hellen and the my budget team are amazing, helpful, patient and understanding. This is the first review I’ve ever done. I wasted $250,000 in the last 3 years through live being too busy and being a single dad I couldn’t keep on top of everything. These guys have taken control of my cash flow, directed exactly where it needs to be and keep me accountable. Only 1 month into the program I feel a huge weight and stress been lifted.
Can’t thank you guys enough. Wish I’d contacted my budget 10 years ago Show reply

Finally stress free

My Budget showed me how to secure my financial future and at the same time my daughter got to see how to budget in a way I couldn’t teach her myself until I went to my budget. Now my bills are paid, I have savings and I can sleep at night. No more waking up at 5.30 am every morning and looking at my bank account and stressing and transferring funds and still not able to make a difference, it was like a dog chasing its tail. Thank you My budget for supporting me through a tough time and teaching me how to save. This was the best financial decision I had ever made. Show 2 replies

Yes. However, they make sure it will fit into your budget. I paid mine over a period of 6-8 weeks. Speak to a rep and they'll be able to give you more information
