If you or your spouse were suddenly gone, would the rest of the family be able to afford the same lifestyle? Now is an important time to review your current life insurance policies to see if they still meet your family's needs. Life insurance can be a simple and affordable way you can help protect your family's financial future. You can even start a policy for your child, which can be a great gift they'll never outgrow.

How much life insurance do I need?

Life insurance can be important for protecting your family in the future, but how do you determine the coverage you'll need? Get some life insurance basics and calculate your potential costs and future expenses to get an idea of how much coverage you might want to consider.

It’s no secret that getting an education is expensive. But it can really pay off. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, someone with a bachelor’s degree earns almost $24,000 a year more  on average than a high school graduate.1 Early planning can make a big difference. There are a lot of education funding options available today, depending on your specific situation.

What's your financial plan?

The earlier you start saving, the better your chances may be of getting the future you want for you and your family. If you’ve started contributing to a retirement plan at work or have other investment accounts in place, you’re already off to a great start. The best way to find out if you’re doing enough to reach your financial goals is to sit down with a professional to help you fully assess your situation.
