For New Parents: 3 Ways to Start Planning Financially
It’s never too early to start thinking about your financial future. If you just had a baby, now is a great time to begin planning. Here are some first steps:
1. Open a savings account for your child
Open a savings account in your child’s name, and start depositing a little money. Studies have shown that children who grow up having savings accounts tend to be more financially responsible adults. You can explain to your child early on that they have their own savings account in their name, and get them excited about using it.
2. Start thinking about college
It may seem far ahead, but college is expensive. That’s why you should start saving now. Don’t feel too overwhelmed though. Consider aiming your savings goals at one-third of total anticipated cost. The other two-thirds can be paid at the time of college, using student loans, scholarships, and your own current income.
3. Get a life insurance policy
If you’re just having your first child, then it’s likely that your life insurance will be inexpensive. Getting a policy is a great way to provide some peace of mind, and to protect your family’s financial future. Shop around for options and choose what fits your circumstances best.
