Starting a Family
Your life will never be the same – and neither will your bank account. All the joys of parenthood that you are going to experience over the years unfortunately won’t come free. From the first day you find out that you’re expecting to the last payment you make towards college tuition, the dollars immediately start adding up. Having a baby changes your life like never before. Along with joy and pride come the new responsibilities of becoming a parent.
Things you should start considering:
- Daycare – You’ll be amazed at the cost
- Health Insurance – What is and isn’t covered under your current plan?
- Maternity/Paternity Leave – Does your employer offer it?
- Estate Planning – It’s time
- College Savings Plan – It’s never too early
