Having a Child
Insurance and Having a Baby
Congratulations to you and your baby! You're euphoric!
And when you finally get over the rush, a sense of responsibility settles in. A baby is a big responsibility. There's nothing bigger.
When you begin thinking about your insurance needs now that you have a little one, consider homeowners and life insurance.
Homeowner's Insurance for a Family
Shelter is a basic human need. You have to maintain that shelter for your baby for at least the next 18 to 22 years. That means you need a home through all foreseeable and especially unforeseeable life events.
A good homeowner's policy tailored for you by an insurance professional will help you achieve continuous shelter.
A homeowner's policy will protect:
Your family belongings
Your home and other living structures
Your liability in case someone gets hurt on your property
Peril means cause of loss. A homeowner's policy will protect you and cover your structure and belongings from damage resulting from 11 perils:
Windstorm or hail
Fire and lightning
Vandalism or malicious mischief
Damage from vehicles and aircraft
Riot or civil commotion
** Flood coverage is usually available on a separate policy
Homeowner policies will also pay for reasonable living expenses if your home is deemed uninhabitable. This will continue your shelter if you're struck by a peril.
Brooks-Waterburn will make sure you have all you need to maintain shelter for your family.
Life Insurance for Parents
What will your family do if something happens to you and your earning power is gone?
That question strikes at the core of a family unit.
And that's the question you'll answer when you consult with a life insurance specialist. In fact, the purpose of life insurance is to financially provide for the people who are financially dependent on you after you're gone.
Brooks-Waterburn can show you the best available life insurance options for parents and how to add beneficiaries to the policy. Your family will always be financially provided for in the event of an unfortunate loss.
Life Insurance for Your Baby
Life insurance is designed for you and your spouse so your dependents are provided for. Brooks-Waterburn doesn't recommend life insurance on a baby.
