A New Child
Sometimes it seems that your child goes from teething to getting a driver’s license in the blink of an eye. The child-raising years are hectic – with a lot of comedy and drama along the way. Be sure to tap the brakes from time to time and plan for your family’s future.
CHECKING YOUR POCKETBOOK
A lot of changes come with welcoming a new child into your family—none more important than making sure your family is financially secure.
Do you have enough life insurance now that you have one more person relying on your income?
Will you have enough to send your child to college?
SAVING FOR COLLEGE
COLLEGE OR RETIREMENT
- Students today can turn to grants, aid and scholarships to stay on their feet financially. You may find it more difficult if your retirement savings fall short.
- Don’t automatically put your retirement financial goals on hold to pay for college. Talk with your financial advisor first.
- Placing just part of what you’ve saved in single premium life insurance immediately increases the value of your estate, plus your beneficiaries potentially get it free of federal income tax.
- Talk with your financial advisor about how your life insurance policy can help provide for your family when you’re gone, and what you can do to minimize their taxes.
