The Financial Uncertainty Preparedness Checklist

There are few industries in the world that have accomplished what the US commercial aviation industry has—an almost perfect record of safely delivering passengers at heights of five miles and at speeds in excess of 500 miles per hour—and it has  done so year-after-year. According to the Aviation Safety Network, “2019 was one of the safest years ever for commercial aviation.”

This checklist defines what you and your family can do in times of financial uncertainty in order to prepare for your future financial well-being. Now, more than ever, is the time to plan for being prepared.
