financial advice for children


Starting a family is one of life’s special moments that brings with it both joy and responsibility. You may be juggling your family with a career, a mortgage and working towards growing your wealth. Many people in this stage of their lives do not have the appropriate levels of protection to maintain their lifestyle should something unforeseen occur that leaves them unable to work.  A Newcastle Financial Planner can help with protection.

If you were unable to work have you considered how you would:

  • support your family;
  • maintain your home and lifestyle; and
  • plan ahead for your retirement?

A financial advisor can help with the right strategies and financial products to minimise the risk your assets are exposed to, while still building up your nest egg.

1 in 3 people of working age will suffer an accident or  a serious illness that will keep them off work for more than 3 months.²


Take Tom and Sarah for example¹. They are married, both aged 39 with a mortgage of over $500,000 still outstanding on their home. They have two children who they put through private schools and who are now at University and still living at home. David is an Accountant earning $90,000 and Sarah a Nurse earning $45,000 per annum. David has life insurance cover but no income protection or cover against total permanent disability and trauma. Sadly, David was in a car accident and it may be some years, if at all before he can return to work. Support from Centrelink is not an option as Sarah is still working – and even if eligible, Centrelink support would not be enough to cover a fraction of their mortgage repayments.

They are at risk of losing their house, and are currently surviving on support from Tom’s parents. Tom and Sarah not only have to deal with physical and financial stress but also the emotional stress of the situation and its impact on their family and parents as well.

If Tom had income protection insurance it would have ensured their mortgage continued to be paid reducing the financial stress and the burden on his parents. This would leave Tom and his family more time to deal with the physical and emotional issues.

A financial planner could have helped Tom avoid his situation by discussing:

wealth and lifestyle;

  • Current and future financial goals and set up a plan to achieve them;
  • The appropriate types and levels of insurance he needs to protect his
  • The need for an estate plan to protect his family’s financial future.

If you are interested in securing your childrens future by protecting what’s most important to you and growing your wealth, make time to see your Newcastle financial planner today.
