Buying Life Insurance as parents

Buying Life Insurance as parents

Being a parent is actually the happiest thing that can happen to us.  They are a bundle of joy and as they grow, life becomes increasingly wonderful. Interestingly, the act of parenthood is all about responsibility and hence comes with a lot of demands. As parents, we wish to do all that we can that is the best and sustainable for the child’s bright future.

So the question is: where does Life Insurance come in?  As we know, Life Insurance provides a lump sum benefit to our family for our loved ones in the event of death of the person insured. If something was to happen to the parent and the child is dependent (wholly or partially) on the parent, then important plans for a bright future of the child can get disrupted. One sees that kids have to stop their pursuit of education or a sport due to the availability of funds. In case of life insurance, upon the death of one parent, the life insurance pays out to the family a sum insured which could benefit kids’ education needs and their development.
