Insurance - Necessary For Peace of Mind
There are many various types of insurance. Insurance is a policy where you invest a certain amount, that you do not get back, that will pay you in the event of a predetermined event. The specifics vary greatly according to the kind of insurance.
Health insurance is designed to help you with your medical care. You will typically pay in a certain amount every month called premiums and you may have to pay a certain percentage on your doctor's visits or prescriptions but the insurance is designed to help you with the costs. It will also help you in emergencies such as an accident, a broken bone, or a sudden illness. Insurance is there to help you if you are having a baby or another time where you need regular care.
Car insurance is intended for accidents; either your fault or someone else's. You pay on your car insurance premium every month (or quarterly or yearly) and if you are in an accident, the insurance can cover damages. There are two basic kinds of car insurance; liability and full-coverage.
Liability will only cover what you are liable for.
Full-coverage will cover anything that happens to your car, your body or to the other party in an accident.
The main purpose of life insurance is to cover the survivors of the person who dies. Life insurance can be used to pay off debt, cover burial expenses or take care of surviving children. Life insurance can be very important, especially if you are leaving a spouse that doesn't work, young children, or debts. In the event of your death, the life insurance company would award the amount of the policy to your beneficiaries.
Home insurance, as the name implies is meant to protect your house and property. There is home owner's insurance and also renter's insurance. Renter's insurance will cover your belongings that are in the residence and most often cover damages to the house itself if there were a break in or similar claim to the home. This will keep the renter from having to pay the owner out of pocket if damage to the residence occurred from something like a burglary.
The home owner's insurance will cover for the same things; damage to personal property and also to the residence.
Many insurance plans cover natural disasters such as storms or earthquakes. Some plans cover fire and some will not. Usually fire is covered if not set by the owner.
There are many other types of coverage that are important for business owners, including business interrruption and disability insurance. The only way to assure proper coverage is to consult with a professional that has your best interests at heart.
