  1. Financial planning means taking a realistic look at where you are and planning, saving, budgeting for your future. Insurance is important because financial planning does not take in to account what would happen is your car is stolen, what about if you get ill, or what about your loved ones if they die. How would extra and un expected costs affect your plan?

    Insurance is all about risk, while no insurance can ever stop the event from happening, for example life insurance will not make you immortal, it can protect you financially if it happens. By taking insurance you are passing the financial worry of something happening to an insurance company. So that if you get ill, your health insurance pays your medical costs instead of having to distroy your plan and quickly find however many thousands of pounds.

  2. It’s the backbone of planning. You have to make sure you don’t go backwards financially before you think about setting yourself forward.

    If you save 10% of your income for 10 years and then go out on disability for one year, you’ll lose all of your savings. But, if you’re protected with insurance then those savings would be protected as well.

  3. Managing the risks that can threaten your financial well-being is every bit as important as saving and investing toward your goals. And that’s the role of insurance in a financial plan.

    Insurance is a provision for the unexpected events that, if not prepared for, could hinder the pursuit of your goals. Like a careless driver who broadsides your car. A disability that prevents you from working. An extended stay in an assisted living facility. Even the death of a loved one.

    Being properly insured is not only a wise financial decision, but a responsible personal act that provides you and those who depend on you with a genuine sense of security.
