“The most important thing is to make sure that obligations to your family can be met under any circumstances and yes, that’s going to involve adequate insurance. And, it’s more than that, it’s making sure that you’re diligently saving, that you’re building your emergency fund and not living outside of your means.” - Maxwell Schmitz
In this episode of Get Ready, I spoke with Maxwell Schmitz, Maxwell Schmitz, the Insurance Resource for Certified Financial Planners about the importance of disability insurance and what to consider during your employer’s insurance open enrollment. We also discussed Max’s financial literacy philosophy and his thoughts on financial preparedness.
