We all think about covering the one who brings home the bacon but what about the ones who cook it? Traditionally this falls under the role of stay-at-home Mums but stay-at-home Dads are becoming increasingly popular in more recent times. However when it comes to Mums and life cover many families are still taking a traditional approach and only have cover for Dads.
When you look at the cost of replacing a Mum though it all adds up. With child care bills, cleaning, the weekly shop, taxi service…there’s a value to every single thing you do for your family. According to Legal & Generals 2015 Value of a Parent research*, for unpaid child care and household tasks alone, Dads are worth £21,601, while Mums are worth £29,535.
With such a busy life have you ever stopped to think about how your loved ones would cope financially if you were to die?
The value of a Mum is sometimes overlooked when families try to work out their life insurance needs. From the parents that participated in the research, only 53% had life insurance. It also highlights that the average family spends £10,244 a year raising their children, which is a whopping £184,392 over 18 years.
If Mum was no longer alive where would the money needed to pay for domestic work and child-care come from? Who would fill the gap and help maintain the family’s living standards?
