Combined finances

Moche Some couples may prefer to keep their finances separate, while others share everything. Whichever method you’ve chosen, when it comes to retirement saving, it’s worth planning together to ensure you’ve made the most of all the allowances and benefits offered to couples.

ISA transfers

If you want to switch from an existing ISA provider to a new one, you’re perfectly within your rights to do so. Much like a mortgage, you shouldn’t feel as though you’re saddled forever with your first choice of ISA provider. Transferring your ISAs could allow you to widen your range of investment choices, as the range on offer can differ between providers.

Goals based investing

The sooner you start investing, the better off you will be. Match your long-term investment goals with your short-term lifestyle aspirations. When you have created your goals and time frames, define your budget. Be realistic about what you can afford to put aside for your investments.

It is provided by a range of different organisations, including local authorities, the NHS and private and voluntary organisations. But choosing the right care setting for ourselves or a relative is not something which many of us have experience of.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to more people supporting younger family members financially. New research shows that 5.5 million older family members expect to provide additional financial support to younger members as a direct result of the pandemic.

Critical Factor

What would life be like if you were diagnosed with a serious illness? Things could change very suddenly. You’d get your family together and tell them what was going on. Before long, you’d start spending time in hospital for treatment. You may also need to take some time off.
