How many insurance policies required for a family

Family is the basic unit of the society. It is an unavoidable unit for every community, society or nation. Normally family consists of Father, Mother and children. Some families also have grant parents and other immediate relatives. Family needs income to survive. Without money nobody can survive. For all requirements you need money. We can classify families with high income, low-income and middle-income on the basis of annual income of the family. There is one or more bread earning members in each family. With the income of these bread earning members the family meet all their monetary requirements.

But today’s world is a risky world. We cannot predict what type of risk we may face every time. Some of these risks may steal the life or working ability of the bread earners of the family. Some other type of risks brings monetary loss to the family. Whatever is the risk we have to cover those for the smooth running of the family?  We cannot prevent or control most of these risks. Only thing we can do is to compensate the monetary loss of these risks. Proper insurance policies help you to cover all these risks up to a certain level. Here we can see what type of policies needed for a family to cover their risk.

We must completely be aware about possible risks and which policies cover what type of risks, how much premium we have to pay for each type of risk cover and how can we make claim for each type of risk etc. We have to select policies as per our income and financial needs. Normally those who have high income have high financial requirements and those who have low-income have comparatively low financial needs. So insurance policies also chosen as per the financial needs and income of the family.

Normally following insurance policies required for a family

Life insurance policy: Life insurance covers the life of the insured person. The life of the bread earning member of the family can cover with this life insurance policy. The life cover or sum assured will get to the nominee or dependents or the insured person, if the insured person dies or getting disabled. An adequate insurance cover will solve the monetary loss which happened through the death or disability of the bread earning member of the family.

Medical Insurance policy: One of the costly financial needs of a family is the medical treatment of any of the family member. A good medical insurance or mediclaim policy can secure the monetary loss through an unexpected illness of any of the family member.

Auto insurance or car insurance policy: Auto insurance secures the financial loss due to vehicle accident.
