One of the most catastrophic impacts on a family can be the unexpected death of a family member. This brings huge emotional stress on the entire family unit as they struggle to come to terms with their loss.
In addition to this emotional impact is the sometimes forgotten financial stress this can bring in the months and years that follow, where the bereaved was a significant contributor to the household finances.
Continuing costs regardless
Consider whether one income alone could cover all the potential costs of the future. Here are just a couple of examples, but you’ll know lots, lots more;
Basic costs of running the household (Shopping / Bills / Clothes etc)
Car replacements, house maintenance, childcare costs
Cost of education (3rd level in particular)
Family holidays, entertainment and maybe a nice wedding gift one day
How can you ensure that your family continues to enjoy and succeed in life, even if the worst was to happen to you?
Life Insurance pays a single tax-free lump sum to the person who stands to benefit from the policy (usually a spouse) in the event of the insured person dying. This lump sum should be enough to cover the costs of running the household, putting the children through education and seeing the family through until your children are 25 years old.
Life Assurance is frequently purchased with Specified Illness cover, as its common for a serious illness to precede a death. Its also cheaper to insure illness and death together than separately.
