FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS

The 10 Most-Asked Financial Questions About Family Building, Answered

Starting a family, no matter what that looks like for you, costs women a lot. And not just financially. The effects on the body and mind from the process of becoming a mother are a whole other thing. Shockingly, this all gets overlooked in our society (that’s momwashing for you).

The all-women team of financial experts at Ellevest know this professionally — and those who are also moms know firsthand, too. That’s why we’re answering the 10 most-asked financial questions about family building: to help you lighten your mental load and feel more prepared when it comes to financial planning for starting a family.

Of course, the answers to these family-building questions will vary depending on your unique situation — where you live, what life stage you’re in, what your career looks like, and what your timeline looks like. But one tip that applies to anyone at any stage of the family-building process is to be as realistic as possible about the cost of having a family.

Use this Q&A to see what that means for you, so you can get a better idea of your financial options as you navigate how to best build your family.

DISCLOSURES
 
*The “Comprehensive Planning | $300 Investment Credit” Promotional offer is for those who 1) are first time purchasers of a Comprehensive Planning package on or before 11:59 PM EST on 6/30/2024 (the “Promotional Period”), 2) make an initial deposit of $1 or more into an Ellevest non-retirement investment account, and 3) are a client at the time the $300 is applied to your account. This Promotional Offer cannot be applied to a previous comprehensive planning package purchase, and is only available to those who successfully complete the purchase before the Promotional Period ends.
This Promotional Offer is not valid in conjunction and cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions, including our Pay Over Time options. Clients who purchase a Comprehensive Planning package before the end of the Promotional Period will pay an Ellevest plan fee starting on the date the Ellevest Plan Terms and Conditions Agreement is acknowledged (the “Effective Date”).
Refunds: If purchasers request a refund before the $300 has been added to their Ellevest investment account, our normal refund policies apply and they would no longer be eligible for the credit. If a refund is requested after the $300 credit has been added to their Ellevest investment account, we would deduct the $300 and refund the remaining balance. Client takes on market risk if they choose to refund.

Ellevest reserves the right to refuse to award you the Promotional Offer if it determines, in our sole discretion, that the promotion was claimed under wrongful or fraudulent circumstances, that your participation is against the spirit of the program, that making payment would constitute a violation of your Ellevest Plan Terms and Conditions Agreement or applicable federal or state law, or that incomplete or inaccurate information was provided.
