Some people see insurance plans as abstract and mysterious things that only cost money without producing any immediate results; others believe that some sort of insurance is necessary — it depends on the needs of the individual. Here are some things that you might want to consider in order to answer the question: why take advantage of an insurance plan?
There are various types of insurance plans. Some of these may fit your specific needs and desires, while others may not. These are a few of the most common types of insurance plans:
Insurance plans were not initially developed solely as a means of turning profit (Ray, financialhighway.com). Insurance plans exist, of course, in the context of the insurance sales business — but beyond that, insurance exists as a precaution. Insurance plans were developed in order to address a number of issues: to alleviate the costliness of private health care; to improve the quality of care; to extend the longevity of assistance (e.g. to ensure that you continue to receive the medical attention that you require); and to guard against emergency situations.
Health and Disability
Health insurance and disability insurance are more efficient when they go hand-in-hand. Health insurance will help to pay for medical needs when necessary. At the same time, disability insurance will assure you that you will have a stable income if you became disabled and unable to work. When the two are simultaneously taken advantage of, you will be able to benefit from the following:
-A continuous income despite an inability to work
-A complete cover of medical expenses
-Discounts from affiliated hospitals and pharmacies
-Immediate admission to hospitals when necessary
These are perhaps the most important types of insurance to purchase — medical expenses can be extremely costly, and you have no way of knowing when you or a member of your family may require costly medical attention.
Life and Liability
Both life insurances and liability insurances are efficient when you want to secure your stable lifestyle. Liability insurance will help you to secure your assets annually while life insurance will allow your loved ones to enjoy a stable lifestyle in any case of your own death. Here are the benefits afforded by such insurance plans:
-Assistance when other insurance policies have expired
-Security of assets every year
-Tax-free financial assistance
-Stable income for the household once the principal member died
Auto and Home
Auto insurance and home insurances are both essentially precautions against material damages; these types of insurance plans can help you to save a lot of money when road accidents or catastrophes happen. Among the benefits provided by auto and home insurances are the following:
Protection from any huge expenses brought about by damage to and investments in your car.
Protection from expensive liabilities brought about by accidental damage or injury whether caused by someone who is using your car or by you yourself.
The ability to recover and rebuild your property losses after a disaster
Coverage of any expenses for lawsuits brought about by injuries or accidents that have happened within your property
