Helping Your Children

These days, given the current economic climate amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many parents of adult children may feel their own finances are in relatively good order, yet they may have concerns about their adult children and their ability to support themselves during this unprecedented period of uncertainty. Helping your children is a parental instinct, and if you have the means you certainly want to help them out. However, remember to do so prudently so you don’t impact your own retirement, estate planning or tax situation. This article explores ways to effectively help your adult children while keeping your own wealth plan in order.

Education Planning For the Children in Your Life

Most parents hope their children will pursue higher education – and for good reason. A post-secondary education can prepare your child for a fulfilling career, lead to enhanced earnings potential and, ultimately, steer them on the path to a successful and rewarding life. However, if adequate savings are not in place for post-secondary education, your children could graduate with the added stress of carrying significant student debt before they’ve even secured their first job.
