Ideas for thanking your family

 It’s almost Thanksgiving. And although 2020 has been a tough year, you can probably still find things for which you can be thankful – such as your family.
   How can you show your appreciation for your loved ones?
   Here are a few ideas:
   First, consider investing in your children’s future by contributing to a college savings plan.
   If you have older children, you can make financial gifts to help them pay off loans or make a down payment on a home.
   Also, protect your own financial independence, so you’ll never have to depend on your grown children for support.
   You can help yourself by consistently investing in your IRA and 401(k).
   And don’t forget to maintain adequate life insurance.
   Finally, don’t put off your estate planning.
   You’ll want to be able to leave a lasting legacy to your family.
   A legal professional can help you create a strategy that’s suitable for your needs.
   By making these moves, you can show your loved ones, in a tangible way, how much you value them – and that can help you keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive all year long.
