Hi jkl, and I hope you find a new job very soon!
I expect that I will be laid off from my current job in the near future, probably in January 2009. As a result, I will need to make changes to my current financial plan. When I have more information, I will e-mail you.
-- Note that this e-mail does not ask the person to do anything. He will be waiting to hear from you. If you want him to make some suggestions to you in the meantime, you should tel him. If you want to stop making contributions to an investment right now, in anticipation of the lay off, you should tell him that now too.
