The basic purpose of insurance, as most people know, is to cover you in case something happens that exceeds your ability to pay. Almost everybody has some form of insurance that they are required to carry, either by law (such as auto insurance) or by a lender (such as homeowners’ insurance). Other types of insurance (such as health insurance or disability coverage) might be offered or required by an employer.
Fundamentally, the role of insurance is to safeguard against risk—and for this reason insurance is an important element in a good long-term financial plan. The specifics will depend on your unique situation, but the options usually include some variety of life insurance, long-term care policies, and annuities for income protection in the future. As your career and your assets mature, you should consider reviewing the kinds of health, disability, and homeowners or renters insurance you carry to be sure your lifestyle is protected. Insurance is especially important for women, who on average live longer than men, and who often carry a large share of the load in supporting children, parents, and other loved ones.
