Protecting your family financially
Now, you will need to plan for these as soon as you have dependents, and if you don't have dependents then the risk is more one that you will have to decide personally what is an acceptable level of risk to take on board for you personally.
Now, financial planning can help you with not having to worry so much about the financial side of things, or at least minimise risks.
One specialist area is with regard to protecting against loss. For instance if you were to die and you have dependents then you will want very much to ensure that your dependents are protected as much as possible financially if something dreadful were to happen to you.
