The Backup Plan

I was asked a question I had never heard the other day.  A member asked me how to invest, knowing the world will end in 2012.  I was stumped for a minute, and then I said that if the world is going to end in 2012 he may as well spend all his money now.  However, he might want to consider a back-up plan, in case his information turns out to be wrong. 

A back-up plan is something we all should have.  You may not live to be 100 years old, but if you do, you don’t want to be broke.  You may love your job and want to work the rest of your life.  But what if you can’t?  What if your health fails?

Your financial plan not only needs to consider what you want to happen and what you want to do, but also a good back-up plan. It is not as fun to plan for, but it sure brings peace of mind.
