As we move through life, each new stage brings its share of joy and challenge. Just as April showers bring May flowers, it is often only after hard work, perseverance and planning that we see the benefit of our efforts.
Planning for your financial future is no different. Saving and planning can be incredibly beneficial when you are faced with a “storm” that can affect your financial security. Whether that is an illness, accident or death, it’s comforting to know that you can continue to provide for your family in the event of a life crisis.
We can’t avoid life’s struggles however, we can help you to develop a firm financial foundation so you can weather life’s showers. As your life evolves, your insurance and investment needs can change dramatically. The following important life events should prompt you to review your financial plan:
- graduation from college or university
- getting married
- buying a new home
- having a baby
- planning your children’s education
- starting a business
- buying a cottage or vacation property
- planning for retirement
If you are currently facing one of these life changes, or anticipating one soon, talk to a financial professional to ensure you are well-informed about the financial options available.
If you begin planting seeds at the right time, you’re much more likely to enjoy a glorious garden when April showers have passed. Likewise, when you plan early and thoroughly to protect your financial security, it will be much easier to cope with life challenges. Knowing you have financial resources at hand in a crisis makes it easier to concentrate on the important emotional and spiritual support your family will need.
