(THE ANSWER… YESTERDAY!)
Money management is complicated and it won’t get any easier.
When you get your first real job, money management is relatively simple. You pay your bills, put aside a little fun money, and if you are smart… you save what is left. Easy!
In time, you meet your life’s partner and suddenly there are two incomes to consider, two lives. You start looking for a home, which brings along mortgage and insurance considerations. And you also start thinking about the what ifs in life. How would we weather unexpected challenges, like losing one of our incomes, or both? And the notion of retirement although still a distant thought, is nevertheless a true down-the-road concern.
Next, you may add children to your life. Medical insurance becomes a bigger challenge. How do you use a Health Savings Account to save for future health care needs? How will you help your children with college and how much debt will they need to take on? And, now the retirement thoughts start becoming more prevalent. Your money management is no longer easy… it is officially getting complicated!
The day comes that retirement is no long an eternity away, but at your front door step and the million-dollar questions are: Can you retire? Did you save enough to live the way you want? What retirement and tax mechanisms are right for you and your partner?
Your financial advisor can help you with the daunting number of financial questions at each stage of your life. Whether you are starting your first job or in your later years, your financial advisor can provide the expertise and resources to guide you through all of these very complicated, but real life decisions.
