Protecting yourself and what you have
When it comes to insurance there are two main categories of cover.
- Insurance in case something happens to you - it can cover you for events such as illness, injury or death.
- Insurance in case something happens to the things you own - this could include your home, your furniture, your car or things that are valuable to you. It’s insurance that can financially help to fix or replace the item that’s insured.
Naturally, no one likes to think about bad things happening to them, but the reality is, sometimes they do. It’s a good idea to consider the following things:
- If something happened to you which stopped you from working, could you or your family keep living the life you’re living now?
- If something happened to the things you own and depend on, how hard would it be financially to fix or replace them?
That’s where insurance steps in to help to protect your financial future. It’s a super handy tool to have in your belt to help minimise the financial impact of an unfortunate event.
