  • What is the impact on my beneficiaries after I pass away?
  • Can I manage my cash flow / fees?
  • Can I afford the extra services?

If you have asked yourself any of the above questions and are unsure of the answers, Moneyplan will be able to assist you. Our advice and assistance can include the following:

  • Options available for the family home or other property – implications of selling
