MPowered Finance Newsletter: April 2023

To My Readers,

I was recently asked by two different people whether they should focus on saving for their retirement, paying for their children's college, or both.

Many families out there see college as an investment in their children’s future. But as important as education is, you can’t neglect your own needs.

To pay for college, students have several options:

  • Loans

  • Scholarships

  • Grants

  • Work-study programs, etc

But how many ways are there to pay for your retirement?

Will anyone give you a loan or grant so you can stop working and retire?

While your children are important, they have their entire financial lives ahead of them. If you have to choose, it's wiser to put on your own oxygen mask first, before helping others.

Thank you, 

Sid Misra, CFP® Beacon Financial Group

Estate Planning

I recently met with prospective clients who already have their estate planning documents in place.

They have Wills, powers of attorney, and other important documents. But in the time since they got these done (15 years),

✅ Their net worth increased

✅ They bought a second home

✅ Their kids are going to college next year

✅ There are some long-term medical issues that need to be addressed

Their documents are out of date and do not reflect their current financial position. Their documents also do not reflect their current and future needs.

So, here is a friendly reminder to make sure all of your estate planning documents are up to date.

If you are unsure about what needs to be addressed, reach out to me for a quick consult. I'm happy to help!
