No one understands your financial situation better than you. That means you should avoid letting someone else tell you how much protection you need. You can get a rough estimate of your insurance needs by adding together your debt, estimated funeral costs, and six months to a year of income replacement. You need the policy that’s right for you and your family’s financial situation.

Don’t be afraid to ask the advisor questions. You should know the product inside out before buying it. What happens if I change my mind about cover or need more cover? How long are premiums guaranteed for? What are the exclusions?

Make sure you do your research before purchasing an insurance product. Make sure it fits your needs and budget, and make sure you understand the contract. The advisor is obligated to explain it to you. Don’t sign until you understand the contract.
