When Should You Consult a Financial Planner? | Planning Insights

Anne Hussman |

You don't have to wait until an event occurs before consulting a financial planner. Having someone help you develop an overall strategy for approaching your financial goals can be useful at any time. However, in some cases, a specific life event or perceived need can serve as a catalyst for seeking advice.

Such events might include:

  • Marriage, divorce, or the death of a spouse

  • Having a baby or adopting a child

  • Planning for a child's or grandchild's college education

  • Buying or selling a family business

  • Changing jobs or careers

  • Planning your retirement

  • Developing an estate plan

  • Receiving an inheritance or financial windfall
