Point poor setter, say makes for financial security (4,6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

easy street

'for financial security' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'point poor setter say' is the wordplay.
'point' becomes 'e' (E is an example).
'poor' is an anagram indicator.
'setter'+'say'='settersay'
'settersay' anagrammed gives 'asystreet'.
'e'+'asystreet'='EASY STREET'

'makes' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for easy street that I've seen before include "affluence" , "Simple way to achieve financial security" , "What the postman wants" , "the life of Riley" , "Comfortable situation" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
