Financial Planning for Personal Life Situations - Chapter Summary

While there are many different aspects of financial planning, this chapter has been designed to give you a recap concerning the personal life situations that may affect financial planning decisions. Our instructors explain how different living situations alter financial plans, such as how the financial plans of a single person compare to those of a married person with children. The lessons will provide details about the financial planning considerations individuals must think about throughout their lives, which may include:

  • Family status
  • Net worth
  • Level of income
  • Stages of life
  • Potential life circumstances
