Expect the unexpected

Written and accurate as at: 10 February 2011

We often feel like everything is under control and we know how our life might unfold. Then, BANG, something smacks us right in the face.

Hopefully you have never had this physically happen to you, however it might feel like it sometimes.

If you have kids, they are a great source of the unexpected. If you want to attempt to plan for the financial requests that children often have, then this article is for you. ‘Hi mum and dad – can I have some money?’

Insurance is another area that is designed to alleviate some of the financial pressure of an unexpected event. You can read more about insurance in the Insurance Planning learning module.

You can also do the Insurance Planning quiz, to test your knowledge on what you do know and what you don’t know about managing risk and insurance.
