6 Things to Consider Before Buying Insurance

Insurance is a significant investment and, as with any large purchase, you want to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Whether it’s critical illness coverage or mortgage life insurance, it’s important to consider the following before making any purchases:

  1. Do your homework. Before investing in an insurance product, you must shop around. Remember to ask yourself: who can best fulfil my needs? Today, you can buy insurance through an agent, broker, or even buy it directly online.
     
  2. Buy insurance that allows you to maintain your existing standard of living. While insurance is an excellent way to protect yourself from any risks, you don’t need it for events that won’t severely strain your finances. Start with basic needs (mortgage, auto, disability) and then, if your budget allows, include other needs (eg. cellphone insurance).
     
  3. Check to see what the policy doesn’t cover. EVERY insurance policy has exclusions and it’s important to ask your insurance provider to explain all of these to you, so you can avoid any nasty surprises down the road.
     
  4. Bundle several policies with one insurance carrier. There can be value in bundling several policies with one insurance carrier. At 20/20, a disability and critical illness coverage can be purchased together with mortgage life insurance to give you comprehensive and total coverage.
     
  5. Do a yearly review of your insurance needs. As your family grows, your insurance needs will no doubt evolve, so it’s important to regularly review your insurance policies. Whatever the changes, you must make sure that you’re covered for any new risk exposures, so talk to your insurance provider about how they can help you stay on top of your insurance needs.
     
  6. Take steps to minimize your risk and prevent losses from occurring. Risk management can go a long way in helping you stay protected and keeping your finances in check. In addition to getting the right insurance, taking steps to minimize your risk can help you be prepared and stay ahead of any unexpected circumstances.
