Some of us are still at the point of deciding whether we really need life insurance or not. Let me help you by showing you some reason why life insurance is very important. After reading this, you may be able to finally make a decision.
Recently I lost my dad and one of the things that really was an issue was what the funeral cost. We had to come up with this money ourselves because there was no cover in place. He had just gotten a policy that required but had not paid his premium. Had he gotten this policy a year earlier and paid his premium, the thousands we had to come up with for funeral expenses would have been saved. So whether for you or an aged parent, a life coverage can be very helpful.
One very common thing in our society today is families left to pay mortgage. Some families being unable to pay are forced to vacate their home. Add this to the pain at the loss of a loved one and we can see the problem being hugely compounded. If your mortgage is yet to be fully paid, the worst you can do is get a term life insurance to cover both the amount owed and the period required for the mortgage to be fully paid. This way no matter what happens, the mortgage wold be paid and your family can be safe from any molestation from creditors.
Debts are not restricted to mortgages alone. You can get a term policy to cover for any debt you might be owing and do not want your family being burdened with it in the event of your passing on.
Many of us have great dreams for our children. Dreams which could be terminated if the provider is no more. Life insurance can ensure that your children still achieve the dream you have for them even in your absence. You can also with your life policy, ensure that your family keeps up the lifestyle they are used to. A good life cover would be used to help them retain this lifestyle so that they would not have to add the shame and disgrace of a reduced lifestyle to the pain of the loss of a dear one.
Life coverage does not just not come into effect at death. In the even of loss of income, disability etc, your policy can be used to tide this period. Take some time to discuss with a financial adviser or your agent for a full explanation of this and more.
With an adequate life cover, your mind would always be at rest knowing that your family is well provided for regardless of what happens. This can be very satisfying for someone who really loves their family.
Death attracts many expenses not just restricted to funeral expenses. There could be taxes, probate and legal costs etc. These are expenses that a life cover can help cover while the insured’s estate is being redistributed. Take care of these expenses now that you are alive.
The older we get, the more this cover would cost. Getting your life policy while you are still in health and young is your best bet. Get an adequate cover now and use it as an investment tool while also ensuring your family’s future.
The point raised in this article might have only made you want to know more. At least that is a good start.
