In this article we will bring to you some important points about making the decision to have life insurance.

We always want to keep our family safe. Our entire life we work hard to make sure we can provide the best to the ones we love. But life is unexpected and full of surprises, and they are not always good ones. As we approach the end of 2020 we see hope. December is filled with festive cheer and we can’t help but expect better and brighter days in 2021.

2020 shook all of us. We felt the power of the unexpected in our bones. We are still confused and trying to understand what is going on and where do we go from here. We don’t know where we are going to be in the next few months. Jobs were lost. Businesses gone and lives were lost.

If you have ever considered doing a life insurance, now is probably a good time to act on it. To do your research and figure what is in your and your family’s best interest. But honestly, do not waste any more time wondering. This is the time to make a decision. This is the time to protect your family when the unexpected hits you.

I grew up in Brazil and life insurance is a taboo topic. Anything related to death is treated as something you just do not talk about so it took me sometime to understand the need and the importance of having life insurance. My husband is English and he was probably the first person that I have ever had an open and honest conversation about what happens if one of us dies. We have a young daughter so more than a silly taboo topic, this is real life and it can happen anytime to anyone. So we might as well let go of these old fashioned ways of facing death and become pragmatic towards it.

Do not waste anymore time thinking if you should or not get life insurance for your family. Take a good look at 2020 and you will see that life can be uncertain and extremely fragile. Be proactive and so you won’t be sorry.
