Protect Your Family From Financial Mess - Life Insurance Canada

By: Donald Carmin

Life insurance is one expense that everyone should do in order to safe guard your family's future. Many people do not like to invest money in life insurance. They believe that putting money in an insurance policy is like wasting your money. Believe me your money is refunded back to you in the form of safe guarding your family. Just think about this, just one expense of your funeral can cost your family thousands of dollars which is taken care of by your insurance cover. It also takes care of your debts and helps protect your family from any financial mess that may arise out of your death.

I remember how one of my friends had suffered for not taking a correct decision in buying a life insurance. We were neighbors and right from our childhood we were good friends. We grew up together and when I became eighteen years of age, I started getting my first insurance related brochures in mail. I used to discuss this with my friend. He never took insurance related topics seriously. He used to say that right now he is covered under his parents insurance and does not has the need to buy any insurance separately. How ever I enrolled myself into one of the whole life insurance plan. Slowly when we both finished our school and for further studies we had to go to a high school. We both took a bank loan for it. By the time we finished our high school and landed up with a good job, the money that we had borrowed from the bank had grown into a large amount. There after he took some personal loans and then a home loan to top it all. Besides these loans he also had taken a car loan and don't forget the credit card bills too. When all this was summed up it was more then his assets.

I used to advise him to take at least some kind of life insurance at least to take care of his liabilities. He used to say that life insurance is a waste of money and said instead of paying the insurance company he can always use that money to repay the debts that he had created. Neither did he realized that an insurance is a blanket cover for your dependents which will protect them from any untoward thing that may happen accidentally anytime of your life. One day he had a heart attack and he died due to that. His family was shocked of this sudden situation that came to them unexpectedly. They had to face even more problems when one by one all the lenders started claiming on his assets and finally his family of two children and his wife were all homeless with no property at all. Now they are facing the worst time of their life.

Had my friend taken a life insurance policy this kind of situation could have been avoided. Insurance is not a luxury that anyone would like to have, but it is even more important then a luxury so as to protect your loved ones in times of when you are not there. Life insurance is designed to take care of your loved ones and protects them from any adverse happening.
