Unpredictable

posted by constance

In my grandparents’ time, it was taboo to mention the word insurance. Not sure if it was culture influence but the mention of it and topics around it meant that you are playing with death wishes before one comes to an old age. So many people would just leave the thought alone. Perhaps that is why those who made claims from matured policies then are not a many as current years.

Some parents who had enough money and had bought their kids policies in those days are seeing their fruits of labour now. The money from maturing policies help to send the kids to universities or help when they were caught in a spot of emergencies that needed some cash for medical and others.

Lately, there has been many who are troubled by the current economy crisis. This is a global issue. Some of the policy holders have decided to surrender their policies before it is matured, preferring to hold on to cash than leave it to the end of maturity. Those are because the policies they bought are intended for a nest egg purpose.

A cheaper policy does not mean any less better. It has a different benefits. It is important to understand thatΒ  term life insurance rates are reasonably affordable and give you a peace of mind for an unpredictable event. We buy insurance so that in the event of anything that happens, our family is not left in the lurch to cope with stress and yet defend for themselves.
