Why get life insurances? Spend a few minutes and find out why it’s so important
Below are a few clips on the importance of holding life insurances. The Australian Government requires that all employees must contribute 9.25% of their incomes into a superannuation account which is in place to help provide financial security and independence in retirement.
But what about protecting your financial security between now and retirement?
How much of your current income do you use to protect your present lifestyle and ensure that in the face of unexpected sickness and injury, you and your loved ones will be able to carry on with your lives?
Insurance is crucial as it forms the foundation of any financial plan. Almost all of our financial and lifestyle goals are underpinned by the ability to earn an income. If you’re unwell and can’t earn an income, having insurance in place is life changing as the videos below show.
And did you know that you can pay most of the insurances from superannuation accounts?
