Our Living Richer Wealth Management team works with clients to help them navigate many different life transitions, and there are few things more life changing than becoming a parent.

This week, I’m happy to welcome Carolina Da Silva, a Living Richer team member and expectant mom, to discuss all the things you need to know, and do to prepare financially for this new beginning.

In this episode we’ll cover:

  • Details on government benefits, who can qualify and how to get them.
  • What you need to know about your health benefits from work.
  • Budgeting for a new baby and how to prepare in advance.
  • How to save money by getting free stuff and store discounts.
  • Understanding how daycare costs may impact your planning.
  • Estate and life insurance planning.
