RobsmallA Colorado Springs-based financial planner has written and published the first book in a series about his industry as it relates to families with special needs.

In time for October, which is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, Rob Wrubel, senior vice president of investments for Cascade Investment Group, released Protect Your Family. That book is planned to be the first in a series called Blueprints for Special Needs Families.

The book “was written to help families with a special needs member answer a simple question,” according to a news release issued by Cascade. “‘What type of life insurance should I buy for my family?’

“Unfortunately, too many families wind up with too little insurance that costs too much. They get sold policies that do little to help them achieve financial independence and provide for their families in times of need.”

The goal of the book, as well as the rest of the series, is to help families attain tools and develop practices that will prevent them from wasting their resources.
