Why do we need insurance? Simply put: for protection. As we grow up we realize – oft-times, way too quickly unfortunately – that nothing is predictable. As such, anything can happen and so when that does (as there is no ifs with life, it’s just which unpredictable situation will occur), having insurance is essential.
There are many types of insurance: life, house, health, car, travel, workers compensation and the list goes on. Then there is general insurance which covers a lot of these areas, encompassing ourselves and the things we value most. What we need to know though is what kind of policy will work best in our situation and we do this by analyzing all the different features offered within the policies themselves.
No one can stop the bad stuff happening; but with a good insurance policy you can protect the value of assets that have been destroyed.
