Adding insurance to a client's profile

As a robust picture of a client's profile emerges, be sure to add all the appropriate forms of insurance coverage associated with the client, co-client, and any children.

Enter information about Life, Disability, Long Term Care, Homeowner, Auto, and Umbrella insurance policies on the Net Worth screen.

This information can be used within the client's plan and the various screens under the Insurance section. All insurance premiums will be added to the client's expenses in the cash flow section. It is important to ensure that you do not double count insurance premiums when entering expenses on the Profile > Expenses screen.
