Why is life insurance important?
Life insurance can give you choices and options, whatever stage of life you’re at.
As you move through life, experiencing milestone after milestone, there are moments and people that make you realise what is most important, and why you need to protect the ones you love.
Growing your family
Whether that’s getting married, having your first child or your third, growing your family often means reassessing what protections you have put in place financially. From the moment you start a life with someone, you are no longer living just for yourself. Rather, there are others relying on you mentally, physically and financially. One of the most important decisions anyone has to make is, what would happen to your family if you were to pass away or couldn’t work?
Major financial commitments
University degrees, loans for cars or other motor vehicles and purchasing a property are all milestone moments in life. Buying a property is one of the most exciting times of your life, but it’s also a significant financial commitment, so it only makes sense to think about how your loved ones would cover the mortgage if you were to pass away or couldn’t work.
Changing family and financial circumstances
There are changes in every family, both planned and unplanned, that can lead to a change in your financial circumstances. Whether it’s the loss of a partner, a second marriage, your children becoming financially independent or needing to care for an ageing or ill parent, all of these things may mean a change in responsibility and in turn, a change in your financial situation. With every change that life throws at you it’s important to think about your financial responsibilities and the people around you who you would want to protect and provide for should something happen to you. Life insurance may help provide that support.
Helping to protect your loved ones
When anything happens in life - good or bad - it’s a reminder to re-evaluate your life and consider what’s important to you. It’s also a reminder to look after those you love most. Often, this means looking at what insurance you can take out to help minimise the financial burden that may be placed on your loved ones on your passing or if you can’t work due to injury or illness.
