Why you should remain insured during lock-down

lockdown

Financial uncertainty due to the influence of the Coronavirus pandemic can have negative emotional and financial effects on everyone. However, cancelling essential services such as your insurance policy is never a good idea no matter how tempting it may seem. Here are a few reasons why you should remain insured during a lockdown:

  • Having an insurance policy give you the protection and assurance that you will be taken care of financially should the unexpected happen. That is why you have to keep on paying your monthly premiums on time even if it means cutting a few other expenses from your budget. If you think that your premiums are too high, rather speak to Iemas Insurance Brokers. As a broker, we have agreements with many insurance companies and we can give you multiple quotations so that you may choose the policy that you can afford to pay.
  • Don’t even think of cancelling your life cover or funeral policy because you will never know when you need it most. Having the right funeral and life cover in place is essential as it lessens the financial burden that your loved ones would have to go through when you passes on. Iemas Insurance Brokers offers life and funeral cover products customised to your individual needs.
  • The importance of keeping your household contents insured should not be underestimated. During lock-down, you can still experience loss or damage such as a burst geyser, broken fridge, broken window or a broken phone. As you will be spending all your time at home, your household contents have a higher chance of getting damaged. It is also important to note that cancelling your insurance might result in higher premiums when you want to re-instate your insurance again.
  • In addition, it is also important to keep your savings fund going, no matter how tough things may seem. We offer various savings plans to help you with providing for your family’s future, education and other needs. For more information call us on 0861 102 383. Iemas Insurance Brokers is an authorised financial service provider (FSP 47563) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Iemas Financial Services.
