Question:

Update your protection plan with a year-end review

Answer:

With the year soon coming to a close, take a look back and think about all the changes that you and your family have experienced over the past year. This is also a good time to look ahead to prepare for any anticipated changes.

Any major changes - whether personal or professional - can significantly affect your family's insurance* needs. A year-end review of your situation will help ensure that you have adequate coverage.

Your family has grown. If you got married this year, your responsibility now extends to another person. The birth of a child increases your responsibility that much more. Consider expanding your life and disability insurance* coverage accordingly. A divorce, serious illness, or death in the family may also require you to adjust your insurance and estate plans.

Your work has changed. Did you start a new job this year? Are you expecting a raise or promotion soon? Higher income means greater financial losses to your family if something were to happen to you. If you left a full-time job to raise children or start your own business, it's crucial that you replace group insurance benefits with a personal plan.

You took on debt. Perhaps you've bought a new home or car, or borrowed money to renovate your kitchen. If you've taken on additional debt, make sure your insurance is adequate to cover all liabilities and interest payments.

Professional guidance can assist you in keeping your insurance and estate plans up-to-date and ready for changes ahead in the New Year.
