INSURANCE 101: WHY WE NEED IT!
Insurance is a way of managing risks. When you buy insurance, you transfer the cost of a potential loss to the insurance company in exchange for a fee, known as the premium. Insurance companies invest the funds securely, so it can grow, and pay out when there’s a claim.
Insurance helps you:
· Own a home, because mortgage lenders need to know your home is protected
· Drive vehicles, because few people could afford the repairs, health care costs and legal expenses associated with collisions and injuries without coverage
· Maintain your current standard of living if you become disabled or have a critical illness
· Cover health care costs like prescription drugs, dental care, vision care and other health-related items
· Provide for your family in the event of a death
· Run a small business or family farm by managing the risks of ownership
· Take vacations without worrying about flight cancellations or other potential issues
