July 2013      

What have you put off lately?  Cleaning the gutters? Having your car serviced? The reasons for putting these and many other tasks off are wide and varied. Unfortunately, the risks associated with putting off what may seem simple tasks can be dire. In these two examples alone, the consequences may include costly flooding of your house or being left stranded when your car decides “enough is enough”.  These are two disasters that could easily be avoided if it weren’t for one thing: Procrastination.

We know. We’re all prone to procrastination at some time. This month we look at how to slay the procrastination dragon and get more out of life.

This is a grave concern- literally

$200,000 or $300,000 is generally not enough life insurance. Unfortunately, many Australian’s are underinsured, not insured at all or letting their life insurance policies lapse. If this is you and something were to happen to you – how would life be? Mortgage payments, education for the kids, daily living expenses all have to be met – without the benefit of your weekly pay packet.

The only option is to rely on welfare. Could you? Really? On those tiny welfare payments? What effect would this have on your quality of life, your stress levels and your relationships?

The cost of life cover varies greatly. Many customers who let their policy lapse blame affordability. Before you let your policy lapse, work out some worse case scenarios. How would you and your dependants survive financially?
