Misconceptions about life insurance

When we first started thinking about starting this blogsite, we encountered certain opinions that somewhat surprised us. Namely, even people who we’re close with have told us that life insurance is the last thing people want to read about and that there is no point in starting a blogsite about it. They told us that those people who want to get life insurance will take it out and that those who do not want life insurance will not be swayed. This is one of the misconceptions about life insurance and one of few that we will try and explain in this article.

The first misconception that people hold when life insurance is concerned is that they do not need it. While this may be true for some people, for most of us, life insurance is much needed. First of all, adversity does not choose and no one can be absolutely sure that they will not meet an unexpected and sudden end. This is a difficult thing to contemplate, but it is important that you realize that you are just as likely to meet a premature end as the next person.

There is also a misconception that life insurance is a bad investment. Namely, there are people who cannot really realize the importance and the value of life insurance as they do not get anything in return, or at least that is what it seems to them. When you put money into savings, you know that that is the money you can access, physical money that you can get if you want. With life insurance, you only get the assurance, legal assurance that a company is going to pay out in case something happens to you.

Instead of looking for palpable proof that you have invested your money smartly, you need to understand that the true value of life insurance is in the peace of mind that nothing else can provide, peace of mind that comes from the fact that your family is taken care of by your life insurance if you should, god forbid, meet a premature end.
