There’s nothing like a pandemic to bring our short time on earth into 20-20 perspective. If you’ve been considering investing in life insurance but aren’t sure which life insurance plan is right for you and your family, perhaps now is the perfect time to seek out tailored life insurance advice from Acumen Financial Partnership. Protect your family’s future today.

The three main worries of parents are money, health and wellness, and a lack of time with the family, according to research by Family Action. Taking out life insurance can go some way to easing all three of these concerns, enabling you to make the most of your time together; safe in the knowledge that, should anything happen to you or your spouse, your family will be well looked after financially.

The importance of life insurance for parents

There are no two ways about it: being a parent is fraught with worry. Am I good enough? Are they happy? Are we doing the right things? Are they breathing?! The list goes on and on. But perhaps the gravest, and most unspoken, worry of many parents is: what will happen once we are gone and how can we protect our loved ones?

Whilst this discussion might seem morbid for a coffee break read (sorry!), it is so important that we have it. Because there is an easy way to assuage these concerns, and that is with life insurance. Life insurance for provides peace of mind that your family will be cared for long after you’re no longer there to provide.

Should the worst happen, your dependents will receive either a lump sum or regular payments that ensures they can continue to live comfortably. Life insurance can ease any financial burdens, paying off debts – such as your mortgage, credit card bills and even funeral expenses – and securing your children’s futures.

But which type of life insurance plan is best for your and your family’s circumstances?

Life insurance and critical illness insurance

Life insurance and critical illness insurance are often sold together, but they are two very different types of protection. Where life insurance pays out when you die, critical illness cover pays out a tax-free, one-off payment should you be diagnosed with a serious illness listed within the policy. This can help to pay off debts and fund any alterations to your home, such as creating wheelchair access.

Here are just some of the expenses that your family will be protected against when you take out a straightforward life insurance plan:

  • Paying for a funeral.
  • Paying for inheritance tax.
  • Paying off a mortgage or a loan if the borrower dies.
  • Protecting financially dependent children against loss of a guardian.
  • Protecting a family against the early death of a spouse, partner or parent.
  • Protecting a business against the financial consequences of the loss of its owner.
