In the run up to Christmas it is unlikely that bills, tax, insurance and other certainties of life are at the forefront of your mind as you focus on preparing for the festivities ahead. And yet it is at this time of year that these things can become incredibly important. For example, if you don’t account for all of the bills that you need to pay then pretty soon the pennies for presents and parties run out and where is the fun in that?
Here we shall focus on life insurance, not something you’d typically associate with the festive period and not something everyone considers to be an essential with people often prioritising other forms of insurance such as home and contents and car insurance. However, there are plenty of experts who think that having life insurance is as important if not more important than these other types of insurance. After all, what could be more valuable to insurance than yourself?
Take a moment. It isn’t nice to think about, but what would happen if you weren’t around anymore? Who would look after those nearest and dearest to you?
In the run up to Christmas, over the winter months, we spend more and more time with our family, snuggling up indoors out of the cold weather and inviting those closest to us to spend time with us. All of this quality time with our family can make us think more deeply about our connections with these people and how to ensure that they will be ok whether or not you are part of the picture.
It can be a bit intimidating to think about life insurance and often people can feel a bit like George Bailey in ‘It’s A Wonderful Life,’ who is concerned that he is worth more dead than alive because of a life insurance policy!
