A common scenario. Two teachers meet, fall in love, marry and start a family. Part of the bond between them is they have summers off. Also, they understand one another, including their financial situation with regards to things like income, savings, retirement planning and benefits.

It’s all good, right? Well, no, not necessarily. If you both have a blind spot with regards to your financial situation, it will be compounded. For example, many educators don’t pay as much attention to their savings, retirement planning and insurance coverage as they should because they mistakenly believe their pension and benefits package will cover everything.

On top of all the other insurance you have, such as life insurance, it is also important to consider public liability insurance. If you need public liability insurance why not visit constructaquote.com?

Here are the five W’s of insurance, and what educators need to know about life insurance.

    1. Who?

    1. What?Life insurance is a contract between you, the policyholder, and the provider of the insurance policy. In exchange for monthly payments, the provider agrees to insure your life for a specified coverage amount. If you die within the term (time period) of the policy, your stated beneficiaries receive the coverage amount.


    1. Why?Life insurance helps protect your family in the event of your death. It covers costs such as funeral expenses, taxes, debts, bill and mortgage payments, medical expenses, post-secondary and education costs for your children. Plus, it replaces lost income. Life insurance protects your assets and your family’s financial future.
