Personal Insurance isn't about saving for disasters you think will never happen; it's about protecting yourself, your family, dependants and your lifestyle against loss.

Many people insure their home, their personal possessions and their car, but fail to insure their most important asset; their ability to produce an income and safeguard future interests.

It's probably not something you like to think about, but if you had an accident or became seriously ill and were unable to work, would you have enough savings or insurance to deal with the financial consequences?

If you suffered a critical illness and needed extensive medical treatment, time off work or modifications to your home, could you afford these expenses?

If you died, would your family or other dependants cope financially?

    There are generally three main considerations

    • Insurance to cover your debts so they're not passed onto your family.
    • Insurance to cover medical expenses and short term drops in income.
    • If your income is important to your family's lifestyle, insurance to provide an income stream if you can no longer work.
