Most of us expect to work until we voluntarily retire from the workforce. But there are any number of things that can and do prevent people from working: severe accidents, life-threatening illnesses like cancer, or memory loss from Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a long list that’s not fun to think about.
Adequate insurance coverage is the foundation of a sound financial plan. No matter how well your investments perform, an unforeseen emergency such as a fire, theft or natural disaster may leave you completely unprepared not only to meet the financial needs of your retirement, but your immediate needs as well.
You probably already have homeowners and auto insurance. But there are many other types of policies that can help safeguard you and your family from unforeseen financial disasters. Speaking to a qualified insurance agent and reviewing your coverage and personal circumstances is a prudent course of action to help ensure that you and your family have adequate protection.
