Life insurance, can you afford not to have it?


A life insurance policy from Citadel Insurance has a variety of purposes and benefits. You may take out a Savings Plan to safeguard your future plans and vision, to secure your personal or business loans, or simply as life cover which can be complemented with optional add-ons to protect you from unexpected events. When you or your partner are responsible for securing your family’s financial well-being, a life insurance policy is essential for your dependents to continue living the life you had always intended for them.

Keeping up with the growing cost of living, the lifestyle your family have been enjoying may become difficult when the security of your family was not thought of at an early age.  When income of a family is abruptly interrupted due to the demise of the income earner, it is at this point that one wonders how the family could carry on without adequate security of a life insurance policy. You will have heard the saying that "life goes on", nowhere is this more true than with family financial commitments.

Additionally, life insurance is an effective way to protect your business, and depending upon the type of insurance, this cost of protection can be tax deductible. It is an essential cover for business partners to insure against the financial loss that might result from a partner's demise, by providing the finance to purchase ownership of the entity.  In the case of Key-Man insurance policies, the aim of the life cover is to provide the funds required for the replacement of key employees.

Lastly, proceeds received from a life insurance policy can be used to pay unexpected taxes on inheritance, as well as funeral expenses. These costs have to be met immediately on winding-up the estate, and could be a financial shock to the family. Holding the right life insurance will ensure that family businesses and other assets remain intact and protected for your family, even if you are gone.
