When Insurance Coverage Is Right for Your Life-Stage

As far as insurance coverage goes, we all agree on one thing. Premiums certainly cost big dollar bills! Certainly, there’s a reason for it. We are paying for a pool of protection. Our collective contributions are there for risk exposure that each of us faces. If I suffer losses and damages and submit a legitimate claim, that pool of premium payments is what pays me. If you suffer losses and damages and submit a claim, that pool of premiums is what pays you.

Of course, every form of insurance coverage is not applicable for every stage in life. The following will give you a good guide as to when it is smart to acquire specific coverage and when it is not.


Insurance Coverage for Your Life-Stage

Timeline of Health, Auto, Home, Business Coverage

• Teenage Years

Though teenagers put a big grimace on auto insurance premiums, it’s absolutely essential that you cover your teen driver. Trying to skimp on teen auto coverage will only backfire if he or she is involved in an accident. Chances are it will happen. When it does, you want the full protective liability coverage!

• Twenty to Thirty

The general consensus among this age group is that ‘we are all-powerful’. Unfortunately, no human being can lay claim to that nonsense. Accidents, sickness and liability can happen to everyone. Number one tip of the day: get health insurance even if you are healthy!

• Thirty to Forty

This age group is personified by being more settled as far as assets, and family. Typically, this group has children, a home and more than one car. Balanced coverage in the form of auto insurance, homeowners or renters insurance, health coverage and life insurance is a must. It is also wise to consider an encompassing umbrella policy at this point. If you are a professional, it’s a professional liability policy is a must and if you own a business, a general liability policy is the way to go.

• Forty to Fifty

This age group usually is at the summit of profit-making, with a spike in personal assets and net worth. Auto, homeowners, health, life and umbrella coverages are things you cannot do without. It’s about time to look into adding disability insurance as well.

• Fifty to Sixty

At this stage, children begin to go out on their own. It’s important to discuss their responsibility to take care of their own insurance needs. Equally as vital is the need to evaluate your mature status and elevated needs of coverage. Contemplate nursing home insurance and a living trust fund for your heirs.

• Sixty Plus

For those who at this point have not thought about nursing home insurance, now’s prime time! It’s a good idea as well to go over all your different forms of coverage and see if you need to add anything to it.

To life! Responsible living means getting adequate insurance coverage. Once you’ve taken care of your needs, you can surely rest assured with undisputed peace of mind!

For instance, your financial obligations tend to increase once you get married and continue to do so as you have kids and your family grows. Similarly, the importance of insurance varies at different stages of life. Proper planning of your insurance portfolio is necessary at each stage of life to ensure your dependents are protected financially.

Here is a list of different stages of life and their corresponding life insurance plans that you must consider buying.


Young and Single

At this stage of life, you have limited responsibilities as you don’t have any dependents. So the most important policy that you must invest in at this point of your life is the disability insurance. You need to protect yourself in the eventuality of you getting disabled during this phase and are rendered unable to earn. Another major insurance that you must consider buying at this stage is Medical Insurance as the cost of healthcare in case of hospitalization is very high.



This is the period where life insurance policy becomes a necessity. If an unforeseen mishap were to happen, you would want to ensure that your spouse remains financially secure. While you can choose the amount of coverage as per your requirements and financial conditions, make sure that it is enough to pay off any debts or loans that may be outstanding and provide a steady income for your family.
