Financial Etiquette: How to Handle Questions About Your Income [BONUS CONTENT]

Over the last few weeks, Ally Bank and Randy Cohen have brought you tips for handling all sorts of potentially awkward situations regarding money — from how to handle a loan request  from a friend or relative, to the rules of re-gifting.

“Knowing how to confidently handle an awkward money question before it actually occurs is invaluable,” said Cohen. “In teaming up with Ally Bank, my hope is that we can continue to educate people on the dos and don’ts of money discussions, keeping the focus on friends and family, rather than finances.”

Since our series has been such a hit, we’re adding one last video for your enjoyment. In this final episode of “Financial Etiquette with Randy Cohen,” the author, humorist, and original New York Times “Ethicist” talks about what to do when someone casually asks you that most awkward of questions: “How much do you make?”

“Financial Etiquette with Randy Cohen” has caught the attention of publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Observer, and The Salt Lake Tribune. For more tips from Randy Cohen and Ally Bank, click here, or visit us on Facebook or YouTube.
