It is seldom planned or wished for, but it is a reality and something that requires discussion - the illness and/or death of a spouse or partner. As the so-called Baby Boomer generation ages, there is a marked increase in widows suddenly left with financial situations that they do not fully understand. There are others who are forced to financially self-educate while providing quality of care for a partner that previously, and perhaps solely, took care of that role.
When working with a financial planner, my expectation is to work with someone who is responsive to changes and who can devise a path forward as we age for the benefit of ourselves and our children. I valued the depth of detail and explanation along with the disclosure of all the variables at play. I would certainly recommend Anthony to my family and friends!
