11 Financial Planning Considerations for Growing Families
1. Emergency Savings
Life Insurance: Ensure you have adequate life insurance coverage to provide for your family in case of an untimely death.
Health Insurance: As your family grows, make sure your health insurance plan covers maternity, pediatric care, and other relevant services. Welcoming a new member might mean more medical check-ups, vaccines, and occasional colds. Your health insurance should be robust enough to cover these without causing financial strain.
Disability Insurance: Should illness or injury prevent you from working, this ensures your income stream remains uninterrupted.
Home and Auto Insurance: Review and adjust these policies as needed, especially if you move to a larger home or get an additional vehicle.
