1. SET A BUDGET. It sounds so simple, but financial security is really key to protecting your family. And through the ups and downs of careers, health and more over the past few years my husband and I know now more than ever that you can’t always count on guaranteed income. So we budget, covering our current bills and saving for future “what ifs” to make sure that even if something does happen along the way that our family is taken care of.

3. START A COLLEGE FUND. I’m a huge proponent of education. If there was one thing that my parents instilled in me at an early age was that as long as I got my education, I could really do anything in life – I could be anything. Education was always a strong focus so it was no surprise that come time for college they were ready to send me off without hesitation or question of cost. That’s what I want for my children, too. There is no question of “if” but rather “when” they’ll go off to college. So we’re saving now to protect their future.

5. GET LIFE INSURANCE. It’s not something we like to think about — a time when we may not be here for our family. But the subject came up for us when we were preparing to leave our kids and go on a trip just the two of us, for an extended period of time. What if something happened? You hate to think of it, but it really put a lot into perspective. Would our kids be taken care of if something did happen? That’s when we realized we needed to put things into place — to establish a will and invest in a Life Insurance policy. Now that we have I can rest assured that in the event that something happens, finances will be the last thing our family has to worry about. When it comes to life insurance, it’s important to make sure you’re adequately covered. Amica will make sure you have the right coverage to protect your family.
