Why protection matters

The challenging thing about preparing for death or a serious illness is, no matter how organised we are, we still won’t know when it’s coming.

It is understandable why people are reluctant to go there, we don’t like to contemplate the end of our lives, or that of our loved ones. Every single death touches numerous people, partners, family members, friends, colleagues, or neighbours.

You can look to mitigate the effects of sudden death or serious illness. Life insurance can be a good choice. This is particularly important if you have children or other dependents, or if you support a long-term partner.

Life cover can prevent your loved ones from being stuck with the burden of repayment they can’t afford or dealing with the sudden financial shock that comes from losing the primary earner.

Before you start thinking about funeral plans, and how you would say goodbye to your loved ones, it is important to start thinking who would suffer financially if you died or became seriously ill.

  • Who would be impacted?
  • How long would our savings last?
  • How would I pay for my children’s school fees or for higher education costs?
  • Will we have enough to repay the mortgage and car loans?
  • Would I return to work?
  • How much cover do I need?
