How Insurance Can Make Life Easier

Dec 12, 2007
Many a time, an event that we did not predict can drop into our paths and hurt us financially. Similarly, insurance can be an absolute blessing that lets you get on with life smoothly during both the immediate and the long term time frames afterwards. One of the main problems with a large portion of the population is debating whether or not they need to take out insurance for something that they view as being unlikely to happen, is that they'll never really know if it would have been useful except by looking back in retrospect.

We may well say that an insurance could have saved us from all the trouble. But that would only be in hindsight. Reasonably, you shouldn't have to take out an insurance policy to cover absolutely every event that's even vaguely possible, and it wouldn't make financial sense to do so. Covering yourself against key, high-cost causes for an insurance claim only makes itself worthwhile if they end up being used. At the same time, avoid getting into lower payout plans as well. These would not help you too much. After all, this means that the compensation for a particular claim really doesn't have much of an impact on how well you can deal with the cost.

The insurance markets are full of huge varieties of options. But you can't avail of all of them. But achieving that balance between a low level of cover against a broad range of risks and the sort of compensation that can really make a difference should it be needed is a hard task indeed. Bearing in mind that, reasonably, you neither plan nor hope for any of the risks that you cover against to actually happen, often people realize far too late that it would have been worthwhile to get insured against a certain liability.

Just ask anybody who has actually had the opportunity to file a claim. (S)he will tell you that an insurance policy offers a wide range of advantages. As an example, let us say that the area that you live in is flooded one year, and you took out flood insurance to cover against damage to both your home and the property inside it while those around you didn't. Initially you would have to pay a lot more to actually keep up the premiums. Yet, at least you would be in a better position if the flood does hit and cause devastation in your area. However, the coverage that you get will be a limited one. I doubt if you will be able to pick up the pieces too quickly after the flood, despite your insurance plan. But there is joy in being able to carry on with life almost as per normal shortly after the claim stops the crippling bill for whatever it was that you could have covered against.

I would say that we should all stop complaining about that insurance premium that we have to pay. The pittance that we pay could provide us protection from financially damaging situations. Even if you have to pay more in total, it is a blessing. And for this blessing alone we should be thankful. When the tough times come around in your life, that insurance policy can be a friend indeed.
