3 HUGE Reasons why Life Insurance is so important for families with children

Today – Reasons why Life Insurance is so important

Do you have life insurance?

It is so important to have life insurance I really cannot stress it enough.

When I was in my 20’s I felt strong and invincible and illness and accidents hadn’t really touched my life of the life of those around me. I thought life insurance wasn’t a necessity. I am in my 40’s now and I have seen friends lose their jobs, struggle with illness, lose partners, become disabled and all manner of life events impact over the last 20 years. We were not so invincible after all.

Life insurance matters.


Reasons why Life Insurance is so important

There are 3 issues I think new families really must consider in when it comes to insurance.

Reasons why Life Insurance is so important

Think about the main earner

If something was to happen to my partner we would cope because I now DO have life insurance but do you know what…most people wouldn’t.

Recent research from Post Office Insurance has found that the average UK family could sustain their lifestyle for just 46 days if they lost their main income. Wow, just over 6 weeks. That’s not good is it?

Replacing the wages of the main earner should anything happen to them is a VERY GOOD REASON to have life insurance.


Think about the main carer

But what about the partner who stays home raising the kids if this is the case in your home.

Do they really need life insurance?

Well if you think about it carefully then of course they do.

Without them, the cost of childcare would soon rack up and that’s without even thinking about the value of all the domestic chores they do. Have a little look at this infographic on life insurance for mums

So – yes absolutely the death of a non-earning spouse can have a significant financial impact on a family.

I didn’t have life insurance whilst the kids were small as we really didn’t think through the consequences of something happening to me. I see now that was pretty reckless and I have heard countless stories of people regretting their lack of life insurance. Don’t let that be you. Earner or non-earner you are valuable.


Think about your home

And what about your home?

When you have kids (and at any time!) not losing your home is REALLY IMPORTANT. If you or your partner were to die or get sick would the other be able to keep up mortgage payments?

Term insurance or mortgage life insurance are designed to run for the length of a mortgage and bring such peace of mind to families and security if the worst were to happen.

So yes 3 really important areas to consider.

No one wants to think about dying or their partner dying, especially when a new family is blooming. But, to be honest…the timing has never been more important. That new little family needs protecting.

    I can remember getting our first mortgage and the advisor telling us that we’d need to get life insurance. At just nineteen it was something we’d never even considered but so very important
