There’s a first time for everything and this is your first time considering proper insurance to comprehensively protect you and your family. You’ve worked hard to gain some financial security, and now you need to make sure it stays that way.
You need insurance that guarantees you can keep a roof over your family’s heads, protect your income, and cover all the other things that matter most to you. Here’s a short guide to help you plan for life’s uncertainties.
1. Get home insurance
Your home is one of your greatest assests and you need to protect it. You can do this with home insurance. Also remember that if you have borrowed money from a bank in order to purchase the property, you will be required to insure this asset.
You’ve probably amassed quite a number of belongings in your home. Now, think about replacing those belongings from your own pocket: your flat screen, your laptop, rugs you have collected, your fridge, and that microwave you got as a housewarming gift. Without insurance, you’ll be footing a very expensive bill.
If you are renting your home, you don’t want to make the mistake of thinking your landlord’s policy will have you covered. You need to get replacement cost coverage in the form of household contents insurance in case of a fire or theft. This is fairly cheap insurance.
2. Make an inventory of your valuables
Now, if you’re really smart, you’ll want to make an inventory of all your belongings with photos or videos attached. Send an email copy to yourself and a family member. This is a quick and easy way to keep stock of everything that you own, and should you ever need to file a claim, you’ll have proof of ownership.
3. Choose car insurance that works for you
Car insurance can be incredibly expensive. Want to know an effective way to lower your car premiums? Here’s a tip: combine your home and car insurance. Combining your policies lowers the cost, and helps you to stay on top of your finances. Choosing a car that’s economical to maintain, as well as living in a low-risk area, can help cut down on your premiums too.
Where to get insurance
