Loving partnerships and promises.
Building a life together requires balancing and blending individual needs, hopes and dreams. Practicalities and passions, certainties and unknowns.
Future goals require present foundations that are solid, safe and secure. Insurance that protects that security is a key to making good on the promises and realizing hopes and dreams.
Our Partnership at Living Equity Group makes good on our promises to support couples to take advantage of true life insurance that is both practical in the present and secure for the future!
Starting a family?
Bringing children into the world and raising families are personal decisions that require private discussions and community resources.
What parents may not do for themselves, they are eager to do for their children and often want their children to have opportunities equal to or better than what they had growing up.
This calls for flexible and expanding income to meet evolving priorities and intentional allocation to starting early with savings for such opportunities. College or trade education, a first car or home, are a few common things that come to mind. Most importantly a nest egg on which children can build and / or draw upon to maintain financial independence is something that many parents consider vital as well.
Part of such planning includes increasing life & disability insurance needs for parents and improving ways of maximizing savings for their children.
Starting a new job?
Whether you work for yourself, another company, or a blend of both; getting educated sooner rather than later about options for strategic savings and protection of key investments helps avoid risks associated with overwhelming loss or bankruptcy, high interest credit card debt, and / or second mortgages later in life.
Setting aside an emergency fund is a beginning level in your unique pyramid of wealth. It will also go a long way in freeing up money to use for building living equity to cash in when you’re ready to enjoy life rather than feeling forced to catch up in a relatively short period of time.
The “rule of 72” is a simple yet powerful tool to use in understanding the principle of time being equivalent to money. For example, if you are limited to putting funds in an account that earns an average of 2% interest in exchange for safety of principle, dividing the number 72 by 2 equals 36. This means that it will take you 36 years to double your savings. By contrast, if you are aware of opportunities to earn an average of 8% interest without any risk of loss, dividing the number 72 by 8 equals 9. This means that it will take you 9 years to double your savings. Which interest rate makes more sense?
Many individuals and families consistently look for ways to work smarter, not harder. One of the ways to creating the pathway to success is by aligning both needs and wants.
There have been many variations on the theme of an old but wise proverb that says in part, “A vision without a plan is just a dream . . . but a vision with a plan can change the world.” It would be unrealistic to dream about retiring on 90% of a working income while saving a minimal amount of money or starting to save later, as opposed to sooner, in life.
Employer qualified plans such as 401(k) plans or 403(b) plans have their advantages and disadvantages as do IRAs and other savings vehicles. When shopping for a vehicle we typically look for 3 things; namely, safety, reliability and longevity.
