The road is unpredictable – protect yourself either way

It was a normal Valentine’s Day morning in Johannesburg in 2014, love was in the air, or so it seemed. A 39 year old man driving a motorcycle was shot dead after a road rage incident between himself and a motorist. It is still unclear what sparked the incident, but it got the Hound thinking whether you’re prepared for some of the unfortunate events that take place on the road?

Are you certain someone won’t lose it on the road and subsequently cause you harm? Life has a series of uncertainties and many unpredictable things can happen. Life insurance is certainly one of the most important things you can do for yourself to make sure your family is relieved of the financial burden of your death.

Life is full of unexpected turns. Life cover is a good investment to consider for unexpected diseases like cancer, organ failure and heart disease. The older you get, the more expensive it is to get cover for diseases because the likelihood is that younger people are less prone to such diseases so investing now could be a smart decision to consider for your future.

Life insurance protects your family when you can no longer be around to do so yourself. All you really need to do is tell the Hound your income and the city you live in and rest assured that you will receive the best quote. Insurancehound.co.za will do all the work for you so all you have to worry about is living your life to the fullest and know that you’re in good hands when you’re out in the world.

“My father passed away in January 2014 and his death left a huge gap in our lives. He had no life insurance so the financial burden of his debts weights heavy on the family. He left 7 kids and a wife and we have to take care of ourselves and the family unit. I think if he had life insurance things would have been different.” - Thuli 26

Thuli’s worry is one that many young South Africans face in the event of the death of a loved one. When a loved one passes away, particularly the bread winner of a family will leave unpaid debts with no life cover to handle their debts. This is very hard on family members as they become overburdened with responsibility.
