Unexpected Illness

The Situation

Matt has just been diagnosed with a serious, progressive illness. He’s concerned what that means for his future and that of his wife Melissa and their kids.

Matt wants to make sure that his family will be secure despite his medical problems.

Matt earns a substantially higher income than Melissa, so he plans to continue working for as long as possible. But he knows that at some point, he’ll no longer be able to meet the demands of the job. He also knows that Melissa will eventually need caregiving assistance.

Matt wants to make sure that his family will be secure despite his medical problems. He also wants a solid financial plan that accounts for his future healthcare needs.
