Five Financial Benefits of Hiring a Daily Money Manager

Daily Money Manager

By Elizabeth Edwards

In an era of increasing financial complexity, managing personal finances can become overwhelming for many individuals. Enter the daily money manager (DMM), a professional service that offers invaluable assistance in organizing and overseeing day-to-day financial matters. A DMM is a professional who handles your personal or small business daily finances and works as a member of your financial ‘team.’  We generally do not take the place of financial planners, tax accountants, or CPAs; we complement and work with your already established team.

The American Association of Daily Money Managers (AADMM) is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, yet many people still haven’t ever heard of the term ‘DMM’. There are actually now five total DMMs within the State of Idaho;  two in northern Idaho (Coeur d’Alene area), one in Kimberly, one in Pingree, and now, one in Boise.

Each DMM specializes in a different market niche – from performing fiduciary work and Idaho Court conservatorship to working with small business owners and high net-worth individuals to seniors, solo agers, and veterans – anyone who could use a little help in managing their finances.  Some DMMs work virtually anywhere, while others work within their communities.  Some work strictly with online banking, and others work with those who are still using checkbooks.

All DMMs associated with AADMM are held to a strict Code of Ethics and Standard of Practices, and all must be insured and have a national background check.  AADMM DMMs are also able to learn more about the field through webinars and can be certified as a DMM after three years in business.

From bill payments and budgeting to financial record-keeping, the DMM serves as a trusted partner in promoting financial well-being. Let’s explore the five key benefits of employing a DMM.

  1. Expertise and Time-saving:

A DMM possesses extensive knowledge and expertise in financial management. They are adept at handling various financial tasks efficiently, including managing bank accounts, monitoring expenses, reconciling financial records, and organizing important documents. By delegating these responsibilities to a DMM, individuals can free up their time to focus on other priorities, such as their career, retirement or personal pursuits.

  1. Bill Payment Management:

Late payment fees and missed deadlines can have a significant impact on one’s financial stability. A DMM ensures timely bill payments, preventing penalties and maintaining a good credit score. They streamline the process by organizing bills, tracking due dates, and handling electronic payments, relieving individuals of the stress and hassle of managing multiple bills.

  1. Budgeting and Financial Planning:

A DMM collaborates with clients to create realistic budgets based on their income, expenses, and financial goals. They analyze spending patterns, identify areas for improvement, and offer valuable advice on optimizing financial resources. Through regular monitoring and adjustment, DMMs help individuals stay on track and achieve their financial objectives.

  1. Financial Record-Keeping:

Maintaining accurate financial records is essential for tax preparation, auditing, and general financial management. DMMs ensure that all financial documents, receipts, and statements are organized and easily accessible. They assist in categorizing expenses, tracking income sources, and providing detailed reports that facilitate informed decision-making.

  1. Peace of Mind and Protection:

Engaging a DMM provides peace of mind by reducing financial stress and minimizing the risk of errors or fraud. DMMs are bound by ethical guidelines and confidentiality agreements, ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive financial information. Their objective perspective offers reassurance, enabling individuals to navigate financial challenges with confidence.

A daily money manager serves as a valuable ally in promoting financial stability and peace of mind. With their expertise, time-saving capabilities, and meticulous attention to detail, DMMs empower individuals to regain control over their finances, achieve their goals, and enjoy a better quality of life. Whether for busy professionals, elderly individuals, or those seeking financial guidance, employing a DMM can be a transformative step toward a brighter financial future. MSN
