Planning to start a family or have more children can bring a lot of joy to you and your loved ones. On the other hand, expenses can go up and income can reduce if one of you takes time off work.

Understanding the financial picture

Short-term challenges often come with a reduction in income and it’s important to understand any longer-term impacts on your financial position as well. Sometimes an interruption in income can bring unexpected surprises down the track and it pays to be prepared.
