If you follow my writing, you’ll know that late last year our family went through the trauma of unexpectedly losing my brother. Whilst it was horrendous for all of us, I can’t even imagine what it would have been like for his children, especially as young adults just starting university.
On top of the grief, they were worried sick about how on earth they were going to fund themselves through their degrees. Luckily, Paul had taken out a life insurance policy years ago, meaning he could still help support their living costs.
It was a complete blessing for them, like one final gift from their Dad- even now he was gone, he was still looking after them.
Whilst I’m so happy there was a positive to their loss, I couldn’t help but feel really silly that I had never considered life insurance before. What if something were to happen to me, and my kids had no financial support or safety net!? I can’t bear to think about what might happen to them- I almost felt selfish that I hadn’t ever considered this before. So, better late than never, I decided to take out a life insurance policy.
Only problem is, I didn’t have a clue where to start. I had no idea what a reasonable price was or if I was getting a good deal. Eventually I put a Facebook status up asking if anyone could let me know who they’d taken life insurance out with. Someone responded telling me to try Life Cover Scout, a really simple test to help you find all the life insurance options available to you based on your answers, so you can pick the best rate. It sounded like just what I needed- something easy to understand that was going to give me answers quickly.
The whole process took less than a minute, and I was so impressed that I was matched with a company with such great prices, far better than what I’d been seeing when I had been shopping around myself using Google. One short phone call later and I now have a super affordable life insurance plan in place that I’m really happy with. I honestly can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner.
