Do I Need A Financial Planner?


Everyone with a serious diagnosis can benefit from financial planning. Whether or not you need the services of a planner is a question of your experience, needs, physical and mental ability.

If you have the inclination and are willing to spend the time and energy, you can do your own financial planning utilizing the interactive charts and information on this website.

If you develop a plan on your own, consider using a financial planner to get a professional opinion about your plan. You could also use a financial planner just to motivate you to do the things you already know you should do -- much as people use personal trainers not so much for their fitness expertise as for their motivation.

The need for a financial planner does not necessarily depend on the amount of money you have. While many planners specialize in investment management, a financial planner can also help you with many other issues, such as getting the most out of your health insurance, and replacing income that you lose if you go on disability.
