Financial security means different things to different people. Some families and individuals feel secure if they have a steady job, own their home, or if they are free from debt. Whatever financial security means to you, it is likely associated with peace of mind and confidence that you can provide for your family's needs, desires, and responsibilities. No one can foretel I your expenses of a I ifetime, but you can expect a basic pattern of expenses during the family life cycle. A plan for meeting these expenses is the first step toward building financial security.
