Insurance Benefits

As an insurance beneficiary you can get insurance for your car, your business, health, home, travel and life. You can protect all of these if you plan carefully. As we grow old our health may suffer and we may have potential health problems.

We have our apprehensions about how physically capable we will still be in our old age. But with a little planning we don't need to worry too much. Get insurance to safeguard your assets and protect your financial stability.

In fact, it is more about security than age. Whether you are a 20+ adult or a 50+ adult, an automobile insurance should be just as important. If you are under the impression that insurance is only for the elderly it is time that you thought more about this topic.

Even government programs like Medicare and Medicaid may not be completely reliable since they provide limited coverage for long term care costs. The medical costs, today, are so high that even with the emergency fund that you may have, you cannot pay your medical costs for too long. Hence insurance is an intelligent option. You may want to consult your insurance agent regarding the plan that you choose.

 

How would you select an insurance program?



There are comprehensive plans and non-comprehensive plans. Comprehensive plans cover care at all levels while non-comprehensive plans cover only home health care or nursing home care. Before you get an insurance policy, consider the following:
 

  • Check the benefit amount that the policy pays you on a daily basis.
     
  • Find out exactly what is covered and, just as importantly, what is not covered.
     
  • There is a time when you have to wait before you can enjoy the benefits. This is the elimination period. Find out how long that period is.
     
  • The benefit period is the length of time that you will receive the benefits. See for how long you are entitled to the benefits that your chosen plan provides.
     
  • The inflation protector rider automatically increases your daily benefit amount each year. Consider the rider before zeroing down.
     
  • Most insurance policies have "age limits" , it is advisable to contact your insurance agent or your insurance company to clarify the details. An "informed" insurance policy holder is always a smart policy holder who gets the maximum from his insurance coverage.
