I have to start out by saying I truly believe the economy is finally improving, and I'm seeing that in my business. But I'm still hearing stories of people who will take a long time to be back on their feet. Often, it isn't the temporary unemployment or underemployment they may have suffered, but sometimes the lack of accident insurance or income insurance when they needed it most. I remember well when I was unemployed and nervously going without health insurance. All it takes is one thing to go wrong and you're really sunk!
I got lucky and didn't suffer any catastrophes when I was without insurance, but not everyone is as lucky. Especially when you consider all the types of insurance that can be sort of rolled in with your benefits package when you're working full-time, but aren't even considered when you're shopping for your own coverage. Whether it's protecting you and your assets, or your loved ones who could be left floundering without life insurance Australia if something were to happen to you, there's insurance to cover nearly any possible calamity. The trick is knowing where to find it.
