May 28, 2008
Are you searching for life assurance? Planning for the worst is definitely a good idea, but finding the right policy to suit you and your loved ones can often be difficult. That is why using a specialist broker can often help. They will be able to help you to find the right policy to suit your individual needs. Best of all - they will often find you really cheap quotes too!

What is Life Assurance?

Life assurance is insurance that you can take out for your loved ones in the event of your death. These days the cost of living can be substantially high and most families would really struggle if their loved one was to pass away. That is why various life insurance policies have been introduced and more and more people are looking into protecting the ones they love.

Not many people like to think about their death, but unfortunately it is something that we do need to think about; sooner rather than later. It is better to plan for the worst and to give your loved ones a peace of mind than it is to try to ignore it and then leave your loved ones stranded. So just what should you look for in life insurance policies?

The Right Life Assurance to Suit you

As with all types of insurance, there are many different types of life insurance that you can take out. That means that you need to establish what it is that you could benefit from the most. The first thing you need to consider is how much cover you need.

In order to establish how much life insurance you need to take out, you need to consider a number of factors. What will the money be used for? Will it be used to cover the mortgage repayments for a certain time period after you are gone? Will it solely be used to pay for funeral costs? Or will you want to ensure that your children can go to college? You need to think carefully about how much you want to cover your family for and what the money will be used for before you take out a policy. Usually it is advisable to take out a policy that will pay out ten times your annual salary.

Once you know how much you need, it is then that you can choose the specific type of cover that you want. Most people take out a Term Life Insurance policy. This is where you pay the company monthly payments and when you die a lump sum gets paid out to your family. There may be an option where you can pay extra to cover critical illnesses, but generally it will only pay out if you die before your policy expires. It is the most basic type of life insurance available and it is the most popular option.

However you can also get Critical Illness Cover and Whole-of-Life Insurance as well as Endowment Life assurance policies. You will need to look into each different policy to see which type of life assurance cover would be better for you.
