An insurance plan specially for women

WHEN it comes to insurance, people's priorities are usually to buy coverage to protect their possessions, like their house and car. Many also have life insurance to protect their loved ones and to provide income for their survivors should the unexpected happen. However, many people don't give much thought about buying insurance to protect one of the most important things in their lives - their regular income, or more specifically, against the possibility of loss of such income.

The potential impact of a disability, either temporary or permanent, on our income arising from an accident can be financially crippling. How well could you live if you weren't able to work and not get a monthly paycheck? Disability is an unpredictable event, and if you become disabled, or require an extended time to recover, your ability to make a living could be restricted.

Although you may have saved enough money to meet your short-term needs, what would happen if you were unable to work for months, or even years? The real value of personal accident insurance lies in its ability to protect you over the long term. Statistically, we have a greater chance of becoming disabled than dying prematurely. This is because medicine has found ways of treating many illnesses and injuries that previously would have been fatal. However, recovery from these illnesses can be prolonged which increases your need to protect your income against the financial impact of disability. Findings of a US study show the following:

* A 30-year-old man has a one in five chance of suffering a long-term disability before his planned retirement.

* A 30-year-old woman has a one in three chance of suffering a long-term disability before her planned retirement.

* Roughly 50 percent of people who suffer disabilities lasting longer than six months remain disabled after five years.

* Heart disease and back problems are the two most common causes of disability.

* More people lose their homes through disability than through fire or death.

* One in seven employees will be disabled for five years or more before retirement

If you're single, you may have no other means of support. If you're married, you may be able to rely on your spouse for income, but you probably also have many financial obligations, such as supporting your parents and paying your home loan. Could your spouse really support you and your family? In addition, remember that you don't have to be working in a hazardous occupation to need disability insurance; accidents happen not only on the job but also at home, and illness can strike anyone. For these reasons, everyone who works and earns a living should consider purchasing personal accident insurance.

But that doesn't mean stay-at-home moms shouldn't consider having similar coverage. Should something happen to the matriarch of the family, the entire household could be thrown into chaos. If she dies suddenly or becomes disabled and cannot work or take care of the family, her husband may have to cut back his hours to stay at home or hire someone to care for the children, which could make financial matters worse. Indeed, when it comes to personal accident and health coverage, women have unique needs.
