Many of us get so busy with our daily lives we don’t take time to consider about the importance of protection from unexpected adverse situations.
Yet, life throws unexpected situations at us all the time. Some we like, for example winning a lucky draw prize, and others we don’t. Our household income and expenses may be impacted by an illness of someone in the family, or in a more serious situation, the death of the breadwinner of a family. Outstanding loans still need to be repaid, and large sums of money may be required for our children’s education.
While we cannot prevent such situations, we can opt to give ourselves a bit of protection. Protection is not all that complicated once you get down to it.
Here’s a quick look at the precautions you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones, as well as any gaps you may need to take note of.
