When was the last time you did a home inventory?

If we asked you right here and now to list everything you have in your house, would you be able to? Chances are you would miss out quite a few things! The truth is, most people own more things that they realise; it’s easy to remember the big stuff, like your flat screen, your laptops, your car! But what about your jewellery, or your very expensive bag collection?

If you’re wondering why we want to know, it’s because all of this is considered as personal property… you know, for insurance purposes. In the unfortunate event of your house being destroyed by a fire, or as the result of some disaster, having a list of the possessions that were in the house makes filing your claim a lot easier

Start developing a careful inventory of your personal property. List items you have, go through each room one by one and make a list. Keep said list somewhere safe. Keep any and all receipts on expensive purchases and remember, when you make new purchases, be sure to add them to your inventory!

Is your vehicle adequately insured?

For the majority of us, buying a car is a pretty big deal, and a lot of thought and research goes into choosing the ideal vehicle; we have to make sure that it looks good, that it is fuel efficient, that it is eco friendly, that it is powerful enough to go up the Seychelles’ mountains… And you would think that once you’ve actually bought the car and have the key in the ignition, that the decision making is done. But in really, you still have another big decision to make: Deciding on the right motor insurance!

The most common insurance that people opt for is third party cover, mostly because in their mind it is the cheapest one available. However, that decision could end up costing more than you expected in the long run.

You need to consider: How you drive. How long you have been driving for. Who will be driving your car. Will you be able to cover the cost of repairing your own vehicle should you get into an accident where you are at fault? Have you considered little extras like rental car reimbursement and windshield covers? In order to adequately protect yourself (and your car), you need to make sure that you get insurance coverage that matches who you are and how you drive, and allows you to have any damages repaired without you having to constantly be opening your wallet!

When should a young adult invest in life insurance?

The answer is simple: As soon as you can! Investing in life insurance is best done while you are still young and relatively healthy. This is because the older you are, the higher the risk, and the more expensive the insurance becomes.

Building a strong financial foundation in your 20s begins with having the right tools, and life insurance is one of those tools. As a young adult, chances are you are currently not married, and you currently do not have children. But that doesn’t mean you will always be that way! Chances are you will settle down sooner or later, and when you have a family that relies on you, then is when life insurance becomes appealing. But the downside of realising the value of life insurance later rather than sooner is that it has then become more expensive. As a general rule, life insurance for young adults is less expensive the younger you are.

What financial needs can a life insurance fill? For starters it can replace lost income for your loved ones if you leave behind a spouse or children who depend on your pay-check to cover day to day expenses. It can be used to pay off any debts you may leave behind. It can cover mortgages, be used to invest in a business. The possibilities are endless — at the end of the day, what you or your beneficiaries use the payout from your life insurance for is up to you… We’re just here to make sure you are protected.
