June 2023 Financial Check In

“The more you learn, the more you earn.”
- Warren Buffet

Pick an activity your whole family will enjoy and plan a time to do it together. Doing this even once a month helps reign in your spending and can be great for your physical and mental health!

Car Insurance Comparison

Shop around for car insurance to make sure that you are getting the best rate for the coverage you have. Like with any type of insurance, rates offered by different companies change and your life situation also changes. You may be able to qualify for a better premium for the same coverage and save money just by shopping around and switching companies. You may also consider talking to your current insurance company to see if there are any additional discounts available to you.

Will or Trust Review

Have you seen your will or trust lately? Set a time to review or create your will or trust. If you have experienced any life changes in your family such as a birth, death, marriage, or divorce, it may be a good time to evaluate your estate plan. Don’t have your estate plan in place?  Start gathering the necessary financial documents to meet with an estate planning attorney so you can get one in place. For more estate planning resources check out K-States Estate Planning Publications.
