The Role of Insurance in Preparation of Your Financial Road Map

By: Shellaine Enfesta

When making a decision on what type of insurance to include or purchase, it always varies depending on your lifestyle and economic status. While it is extremely important to have this insurance to get protected from all the uneventful accidents in your life, you have to put into consideration that there is no one type of insurance package that fits-all-your needs.

Several types of insurance that will ultimately protect you and your family and love ones from any unforeseen cost of illness, death, accidents, disabilities and home disasters.

Types of insurance you should consider:
Life Insurance; Disability Income Insurance; Health Insurance (medical and dental insurance); Automobile insurance; Homeowners or Mortgage Insurance; Long-Term Care Insurance; Liability Insurance; Travel Insurance; Loans and Credit Insurance; Credit Card Insurance; Business Insurance; Professional Insurance
Accidental Insurance

The more important insurances like life insurance and disability insurance is a necessity that is virtually a must. Life insurance for instance is virtually a must for people with a spouse and children.

Whereas for single person and no dependant, it would be less important to obtain a life insurance, though you might need it at one point. And having disability insurance for a person with a family would protect his or her family from income that would otherwise devastate their families.

The amount of life insurance you take out is largely dependent on the size of your family and the income and home mortgage that you carry. With life insurance you only collect a payout when you die, which can provide your surviving children and spouse and other dependents with the money and/or funds necessary for them to carry on with their lives- financially.

That fund would take care of your funeral expenses and is also necessary to maintain their living standards and also help to repay debt and help with your childrens educational costs.

Shop around for the best insurance companies that sell those insurance that will fit into your budget and economic situation. Find those insurance agencies or brokers who offer policies from companies whose financial strength are highly ranked by ranking agencies.

Disability insurance and health insurance are both important. Your health insurance is almost always covered by your employer as part of your benefit, but sometimes you will still need to make some upgrades to the existing coverage.

Whereas, disability insurance may be more important because of the fact that in case there is something that happens to you, your family will not go through the burden of insufficient fund needed for your everyday needs. You weigh in which of these types of insurance is more important as it relates to your situation.

The listed types of insurance that are essentially needed for protection plays a big role in planning your financial roadmap. So, the role of insurance in your financial road map has to be assesses and dealt with accordingly.
