Research shows that Kiwis are underinsured.
Do you have the protection you need?
Every parent wants the best for their family. But how would your family survive financially if you or your spouse suffered a serious accident or illness?
According to a recent research report commissioned by the Financial Service Council New Zealanders are under-insured by $650 billion.
The research found that over the past five years, one in seven households has experienced a serious illness resulting in an inability to work for three months or more.
55 per cent of households would be unable to pay all their expenses and maintain their lifestyle within a month after sick leave and annual leave ran out.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Get the protection you need
Set aside time now to ensure your family is protected from the unexpected. Whilst insurance can’t prevent serious illnesses and injuries from occurring, it can protect your family from the financial consequences such misfortune can bring.
From basic life cover to eliminate debts such as your mortgage, to monthly payments to take care of expenses if you can’t work for an extended period, I can help you formulate a life insurance strategy that suits your circumstances and budget.
