"Making plans to start a family or increase your existing one can be a joy. And on a practical level, expenses can go up while your income drops if you take time off work"
Usually one or both parents will take some time off work when a new baby arrives. While a reduction in income can present obvious short-term challenges, there can also be impacts on your long-term financial position.
How We Can Help
We’re here to help you look ahead and be financially prepared for all that comes with growing your family, which could include:
- The costs of raising children—including child care and education costs.
- The impact on your household income, and on other goals you have.
- How to meet upcoming expenses while setting a path to help your children’s financial future.
- The need for insurance such as Income Protection, Death and Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) and Trauma Insurance and whether they will be appropriate for both of you.
