In times like these, it’s more critical than ever to focus on your Financial Blueprint. Do you have a plan in place that helps you navigate through worst-case scenario times? In this video, Greg Powell & Jason Hatley talk about the planning strategy that Fi Plan Partners has in place for panic situations.
Even though we can’t control the market, we can control how we react to it. There are also things within your plan that you can control to help you stay calm and navigate through these times such as:
o Inventory of your short and long-term goals such as college funding, weddings, major purchases and retirement
o Budgeting, saving and spending habits
o Debt payoff strategies
o Risk planning and protection strategies such as obtaining adequate life, disability, and property-casualty insurance
o Estate and tax planning
o Impactful decisions and strategies – pension options, social security strategies, health insurance/Medicare decisions, Roth conversions, etc.
o Employee benefit selection and maximization
Volatile markets can also present planning opportunities such as the following:
o Tax-loss harvesting
o Income variability – Roth conversions, donor-advised funds, etc.
o Low-interest rate environments for refinancing and purchasing opportunities
When the news is coming at you and there’s a lot of uncertainty, having a plan in place can help you put the panic on hold. Having a plan in place can help you look at the overall picture with your dreams and goals in mind, with confidence. Give us the opportunity to build Your Financial House® and to have communication with you as we navigate through these times.
