How To Save Your Life And Property With Insurance

by : Ajeet Khurana

Insurance is important. In fact, it is so important that most of us have many forms of it from health and dental to homeowners and life. But, most people do not have enough insurance. That's because of several reasons.

First of all, insurance costs money and many people don't want to pay for the amount of coverage they need. That's because there are so many different types of covers the average person needs.

This includes disability, life, health, property, rental, car, and more! It's hard to imagine that you need so many insurance policies, but that's the way it is. So, people must prioritize.

They must put what is most important first. Generally, that is health and property or life insurance. People compromise by getting higher deductibles on their other coverage policies.

Health Insurance

This coverage is really important. It can be the difference in a lifesaving operation and simply dying. However, this cover is expensive and it is hard to determine what deductible you require.

Generally, if you are healthy you can go for a higher deductible because it is unlikely you will become ill anytime soon. However, if you are not that confident about yourself then you have to get the best policy you can afford.

This will definitely take a chunk out of your budget, but it is worthwhile. It's reassuring to know you have health insurance in case something happens you know you will be covered.


Property cover is really crucial if you own a home! That's because homes cost a great deal of money and are perhaps the biggest one investment anyone ever makes. Because of this you will want to insure your home so that in case of a fire, flood, or other disaster you will have the coverage you require.

You might like to think that nothing will happen, but if you are underinsured and something were to happen would you be able to afford to rebuild? That's a crucial question you ask yourself when it comes to choosing insurance.

Life protection is really important if you have dependents you will leave behind. However, if you don't have any dependents there is really no reason to have lots of this insurance. This is your personal call and one that you should evaluate depending on your situation.

Some people feel they require a lot of this coverage to take care of those they leave behind. Then, there are others who are more concerned with taking care of themselves during this lifetime and not so worried about those they leave behind.


Another type of cover you should consider, especially if you are self-employed, is disability cover. This is really crucial because if you are unable to work you will still need an income.

How will you pay your medical bills? How will you eat? You need to consider how much money you have saved and what you would do in this situation. Then you can determine how much disability cover you need.
