STARTING OUT IN LIFE
I'm young and healthy - why do I need insurance? Excellent, that is the perfect time to take out insurance.
When you are young and healthy with no pre-existing health conditions, you can easily and cheaply obtain insurance. If you wait until you have a condition, or until life throws you a curveball, insurance can become expensive very quickly. Or worse, you might not be able to get it at all.
By the time you have kids and or a mortgage, chances are you will want to protect your future earnings and you may be more aware of your mortality or have friends who have become unwell or unable to work. If you have insurance in place and then you get a curveball, it does not affect your insurance or your premium.
Taking out insurance when you are young and healthy means you are set up for life with a good insurance policy and presuming you continue to pay your premiums, no curveball can knock it out of place.

I’ve got car insurance, what’s the point of life insurance?
Who brings in the money? You or your car?
Most of us are sensible enough to insure our cars, but are we sensible enough to insure our greatest asset? As income earners, our greatest asset is our future earnings – and that means insuring ourselves. If we are unable to work for a period of time, or to work in the same capacity, our way of life can be drastically affected.
If you are a 30 year old earning $70,000 you can assume you will earn well over $2 million. Your family, kids and incidentally you, will miss out on this $2 plus million and most likely incur many additional costs if anything were to happen to you . Imagine your life now if your means of earning money was taken away. Surely that is worth insuring?
