5 Ways Your Children Can Influence Your Retirement

Posted by on September 8, 2014

We often ask our clients “What is important to you in life?” While priorities and preferences vary, the majority of our clients cite “family” as a primary value.

Couples who include children in their lives face fundamental differences in their financial life cycle, which affect their retirement in a number of ways.





Since children are an important life project for many couples, Sensible Financial® families understand that children have a pervasive impact on financial preparations for retirement. These families take their intended spending on their children into account when planning their living standard both before and during retirement.
