  1. 1. WHAT TO EXPECT You may want to explore what options you have in getting the most out of your retirement savings, generally with the intention of making them last as long as possible. At this point in your life, you might want to consider downsizing – despite wanting to maintain your standard of living. Retirees are likely to have some knowledge and experience about financial products and probably would have done research around income products. Old Mutual can offer the right solutions and advice to help you remain financially independent for years to come. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Have you considered the conversion of your group benefits? • Do you want to pro-actively plan for the financial costs of frail care? • When last did you update your estate plan? Do you have sufficient liquidity in your estate? • Are you on track with your retirement income? Do you have sufficient income to cover your monthly budget? • Are you drawing down on capital every month? • Will you be be relocating at retirement, and what are the cost implications? • Can you afford to continue paying your medical aid? WHAT TO EXPECT Single parents often experience some financial difficulty, especially if you are going from a dual to a single income. You may need to work very hard to make ends meet. This often means that you’re very conscious of the importance of securing your finances with a well structured financial plan. Depending on your circumstances and previous relationship dynamics, like many single parents, you may not have had much financial control in the past and will likely be hungry for information and financial independence. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Have you amended your stipulation in your will and your beneficiary nominations? • If you battle to get by on your salary, imagine your dependants trying to get by without it? • Do you need help with your retirement annuity and managing the budget? • Are you preparing/prepared for the financial costs of education? • Have you got emergency investments in place for unexpected opportunities? WHAT TO EXPECT As your expenses as a family grow, you may be looking for ways to make your joint income go further and you’re likely to understand the importance of protecting it. Reviewing your budget at this time is particularly important. Generally, established families have some financial product knowledge and experience and tend to have a good idea of what they want and need. A financial adviser can assist you by helping to create a proper budget, with the aim of identifying opportunities to invest and save for the future. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • If you become non-productive after a disabling event, would your family be able to retain their standard of living? • Would you need financial assistance in the event of retrenchment? • Should any one of your family members pass away or become disabled, are you financially prepared? • Are you responsible for your parents? • Have you had a look at your retirement annuity and are you still on track to achieving your dreams or goals? • Do you know what is available to you when your retirement annuity matures? • What will the impact be on your pension fund accumulation in the event of being unable to work? WHAT TO EXPECT While you may feel that you are too young to start investing, the opposite is in fact true. With time on your side, you have a valuable financial asset at your disposal – compound growth. As you may not have a stable income, why not consider a product that you can add to or access whenever it suits you? Even a small investment can do great things over time. For most students (excluding of course those who studied it) the world of personal finance is rather murky territory. Old Mutual understands this and can offer sound guidance in building your financial future. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Did you know that the earlier you start saving, the better your return over time and the better your chances are of achieving all your dreams? • Did you know you can start for as little as R250 a month? • Have you started to put away money for a future goal or dream? • If something unforeseen happens, who will cover your debt or funeral costs? • If you need to recover after an accident, how will you replace your income from that part-time job or pay for studies? • Are you and your parents financially prepared if you, for example, become disabled after an accident? WHAT TO EXPECT Like most married couples, your life and financial circumstances are likely to continuously change. You may be considering starting a family or buying a new home to accommodate your new lifestyle. While you or your spouse may have some experience and knowledge of financial products, a financial adviser can help guide you through your changing financial considerations – such as how to deal with joining your incomes, as well as the financial implications of the marriage agreement you entered into together. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Will your spouse be financially secure (without your income) if something were to happen to you? • Should anything happen to your spouse, will you be covered? • Have you looked at your retirement goals together? • Have you considered your will and estate or do you need advice on this? • Do you have dreams of a bigger house or another vehicle? • Are you planning an addition to the family and have you made a plan financially? • Have you considered the impact of prolonged hospitalisation or an extended illness?

DETOUR DEATH It’s important to consult a financial adviser in winding up the estate of a loved one. Their assistance in dealing with the last will could prove to be invaluable in many circumstances. DETOUR RETRENCHMENT Retrenchment is something you never imagined would happen to you. Income or policy protection can be a lifeline at this point, but it’s important to speak to a financial adviser to help review your finances during this difficult time. WE’RE WITH YOU FROM TODAY.

You can also use the time that you have on your side to take advantage of compound growth and secure your financial future. While you may have some knowledge about financial services, it’s important to seek financial advice, especially if you’re making serious financial decisions which could affect your future. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Did you know that one of your biggest assets is your income earning ability? Protect it. • If something unforeseen happens, who will cover your debt? (vehicle finance, etc.) • If you become disabled or suffer a severe illness, do you have sufficient cover for any expenses that may be incurred during your recovery? • Would you like financial assistance in the event of retrenchment? • If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident – and need 3 months to recover – will you still receive your income? • If you’re earning a steady income, have you thought about making provision for your retirement? • Do you have an investment or savings for a ‘rainy day’ or that special holiday? • If you’re planning to buy a house, have you considered saving for the deposit? • Have you considered your will and estate or do you need advice with this? WHAT TO EXPECT With the arrival of a baby and the expansion of your family, you are likely to experience a dramatic shift in your priorities and financial needs. As a new parent, it’s essential that you understand the importance of insuring yourself with Life and Disability Cover as well as having a good medical aid. You should also start saving for your child’s education as soon as possible (hint: incorporate premium increases that keep pace with the rising cost of education). As the realities of being responsible for another life hit home, new parents are likely to be hungry for information and advice on what to do. Financial advisers can assist you with dealing with the true financial implications of having a baby. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • Have you made additional provision to ensure your dependants will maintain their standard of living if your income is jeopardised? • Have you thought about the cost of education and giving your child the best start in life? • Do you want to ‘future-proof’ the payments of your child’s education plan? • Does your current will include the nomination of a guardian? • Are you financially prepared if your child is born with special needs? • Have you thought about the cost of a family holiday and would you like to plan for it? • Have you consided the cost of medical care? • Do you have an emergency fund? • Have you consided the impact of a reduced household income during maternity leave? WHAT TO EXPECT At this stage you are going through a period of change and are probably not only dealing with the challenge of your approaching retirement but also your concerns about maintaining your lifestyle. If you find yourself with an emptier home and a little extra cash, it’s the ideal time to consider increasing your retirement annuity premiums to take advantage of tax benefits or boosting your discretionary savings. Most empty nesters are likely to have some degree of knowledge and experience of financial solutions. Financial advisers can help you find specific solutions to accommodate your needs, while helping to sustain your income into later years. QUESTIONS TO HELP CUSTOMERS UNDERSTAND THEIR NEEDS • If anything should happen to your child, do you understand the financial impact on you? • Do you have any family history of cardiovascular disease or hereditary illness? • Have you found that there is a little more cash at the end of the month? • Have you re-looked your retirement and do you know the options available to you when your retirement annuity matures? • Are you responsible for your parents? • Are you confident that you fully understand the amount of capital required to retire financially independent?
  2. 2. It’s either a time to discover what you love doing or continue doing what you love. At this stage, you may have few or no dependants and some extra cash – enough to start that small investment or relook your current investments. Whatever your goals, today is the time to start. As your life changes, so too do your financial needs. It’s important to review your plan often to accommodate these changes. DETOURS ESTABLISHED FAMILY The kids are growing up, and they never fail to remind you of how fast life is passing. Finger-painting yesterday, long-division today. It’s a time when you can dream together as a family – looking forward to that holiday, getting a puppy or finding that dream home. And with the right financial plan, there’s no reason those dreams won’t come true. WHERE ARE YOU ON THE LIFE STAGE MAP? MARRIED Around about now, you might be learning who you really are and what you really want. This is a time of late nights and long days. About love and life, and about money. And with time on your side, the lesson of compound growth could benefit you for years to come. THE STUDENTSTUDENT WORKING PROFESSIONAL NEW PARENTS Your priorities shift beyond expectation when you have little ones. It’s a time of long days, and sometimes longer nights. A time of laughter and joy, tears and tantrums. A time when you should cherish each milestone and live in the moment – but also think about tomorrow’s needs, like starting that education policy sooner rather than later. There are never enough hours in the day as a single parent and you often dream of growing an extra set of arms just to carry the load. It’s a time when you become a professional juggler – school, work, play-dates, meetings and finances – at least you know financial advice is just a phone call away. THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALSINGLE PARENT EMPTY NESTERRETIRED It’s a time that’s met with relief and excitement for some, a time of apprehension for others. A whole new chapter in your life, retirement requires a big shift – one that many South Africans are insufficiently prepared for financially. Me, Myself and I, becomes You, Us and We. This is a time to forge a partnership with the person who brings out the best in you. A time to enjoy the little things in life – because one day you’ll look back and realise they really were the big things. Like making a small decision to start an investment together – you will be amazed at how big the results can be. DETOUR DIVORCE It’s a time filled with challenges you never imagined you’d have to deal with, something you never thought would happen to you. It’s a time when your emotions run high and morale can be low. Make sure that this doesn’t cloud your rational mind, as the financial agreements you make now will likely be for the long term. DETOUR DEBT It’s a time that many people go through, but few admit to. High interest rates, low salary increase. High living expenses, low morale. The spiral continues, down and down. It’s easy to get into debt, but difficult to get out – unless you face the challenge head-on and get professional help sooner rather than later. DETOUR RETRENCHMENT It’s a time when it’s natural to feel a sense of rejection. You may even start doubting yourself, and doubting your ability to find a new job. It’s a stressful time, personally and financially, so make sure you speak to a financial adviser on moving forward, taking your income limitations into account. This is your time, to rediscover yourself, your partner, your hobbies and what really makes you tick. It’s a time to watch your kids spread their wings and make you proud. You may be left with more time, more money and less responsibilities – the perfect time to shift focus and invest just for yourself, for a change! DETOUR DEATH It’s a time filled with sadness, loss and anguish. A time where you wish you could pinch yourself and wake up from the nightmare. The death of a loved one can tear a family apart. It’s a time where emotions can cloud your decisions, so it’s important to involve a financial adviser when dealing with the last will and testament. As our lives change, so do our financial needs. By identifying your Life Stage, you can pinpoint the solutions that will best suit your needs at this specific time of your life. Each Life Stage is matched with a selection of products on the back of this Life Stage Map. But remember, it’s always best to get advice from a financial adviser or broker before making any decisions. WE’RE WITH YOU FROM TODAY through every stage of your life
