Sinead,

Well done on sorting out your situation. Be careful with setting up pensions. They need careful consideration also. Plenty of advice here on that as well. I just think that a pensions advisor who is tied to any particular company will not often give you the best deal.

Sinead, given that you're self-employed with a baby it might make sense to delay the pension for a while and build up a decent emergency fund - as one partner is self-employed it might be worth having an emergency fund of 6-12 months' worth of living expenses - you don't want to get into the situation of having to borrow again if things get quiet/tough with your business.

Also, do you have adequate insurance e.g. life, income protection etc?

Thanks for your comments Sherman. We have just set up a separate account for the emergency fund and have 3 months living expenses in it, we are hoping to build it to 6 months as soon as possible.

We do have all the insurances - life, income protection, house etc. We are lucky to have a broker who is a family member and he speaking to us about the pensions also.
