The Timeline Historic Review of Income and Financial Transactions (THRIFT) is a retrospective, individual assessment designed to assess personal financial management over 28 days (or a single pay period) for individuals receiving Social Security and other income. The assessment uses the timeline follow-back approach (Sobell & Sobell, 1992), incorporating reference to a calendar to prompt recall of finances.
