The ‘bread winner’ responsiblity to hold adequate life assurance
There is a responsibility on every bread winner in a family to have adequate life cover. Yet, there remains many individuals who do not hold life assurance other than a mortgage protection plan. Insurances companies dread getting calls from the family of a deceased client. These calls are to establish if the deceased had life insurance and in some cases they had little to no life cover.
Let’s look at the following life assurance example:
Frank had a pension plan in place but had not yet taken out life assurance. Each year on the anniversary of his pension, he would receive additional recommendations. His insurance broker recommended that he take out a life assurance. His plan was for €500,000 a year at a cost of €78 per month. This would cover him until he was 65 years old.
Frank passed away prematurely before taking out this policy. Frank’s family was left financially unstable. Life insurance would have provided them this stability.
Taking out adequate life cover is of the upmost importance especially as it ensures that your family will receive financial security upon the event of your death.
