Things to ask yourself when it comes to insurance

If you are unsure about the type of insurance you need or think it is a waste of money then there are some things you should think about.  Here are a few of our top tips when it comes to considering insurance.

Take some time out to think about and identify how much money you might need to cover you and your family should the worst happen;

Understand how much risk you are willing to take, will you be fine for a couple of weeks or a couple of months?  Decide on this and then protect yourself for the rest;

Consider changing your savings approach so that you have a rainy day or emergency fund and aim to save enough to cover three months’ pay or income;

Life changes regularly, new children, new partner or a new home.  Make sure that you review your cover and risk regularly to make sure you remain adequately covered;

Seek advice from an expert, independent adviser or if you know your stuff get in touch with your provider.  

Take a regular insurance health check.  Having an independent expert review your cover and needs will allow you to sleep comfortably in the knowledge that you have the right cover at the right price.



Types of insurance to consider

There are a wide variety of different insurances available and comparing your insurance options with a professional a no brainer.
