TAKING CHARGE AT ANY AGE

Here are the top four things you can do to take charge of your health and finances. These are great guidelines that build on each other as you age.

20s - Commit to physical and financial health. A healthy relationship with your body AND your money starts now.

30s - Maintain your medical records and know what's written in them. Check for red flags and mistakes and ensure you see that they are appropriately addressed.

40s - Review your current insurance policies and investments. Start researching what options are available to you in case of a long term care event and who may provide them.
