This study investigates how the relationship between perceived financial well-being and psychological well-being is influenced by income loss in the context of the adverse economic and social conditions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. A survey conducted with 994 Brazilian respondents allowed the research hypotheses to be tested by means of multigroup structural equation modelling. Our findings show that, after controlling for gender, age, and income, current money management stress and expected future financial security (the present and future dimensions of perceived financial well-being, respectively) are statistically significant to explain psychological well-being. Managerial and societal implications include the provision of knowledge that may allow financial education programmes and public policies aimed at reducing the negative impact of the perceived financial strain on well-being to be better targeted.
