But what about identity theft?
This recent Equifax breach has left many of us wondering what it means that we “may have been impacted.” The truth is, we don’t know yet. Identity thieves are patient, often waiting years to use the information they’ve stolen.
You can enroll in Equifax’s free one-year credit monitoring, or you can go a step further and freeze your credit. But is this all it takes to be secure?
If we’re fortunate never to have our identities stolen, we’re still stuck as ourselves, facing risks we may not want to face: running out of money, addressing long-term care, and earning a necessary rate of return.
At Goostree Financial Group, we focus on risk. When we say ‘wisdom over hindsight’ we mean preparing for the future.
Are you ready for what’s next?
