What would they do without you?

As a single parent you're the cleaner, cook, taxi driver and, of course, both Mum and Dad.

When the kids depend solely on you, you cant afford not to have protection

Just ask yourself how you and the children would cope if you were too ill to work or, worse still, died unexpectedly?

  • Who would look after your child or children whilst you recovered from an illness?
  • Would you be able to afford additional child care?
  • How long would it be before the family home became vulnerable?
  • How would the loss of income affect your children’s lifestyle?
  • If the worst happened how would you leave money to provide for your children?

Are you a stay-at-home parent?

Many stay-at-home parents are unaware of how much they contribute financially to the household budget. They take on many of the often essential jobs round the house that would otherwise be outsourced for somebody else to do.

Some of these jobs include: housekeeper, cook, driver, accountant, and in some cases many more! Accumulated over a number of years, this could be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. If you were to die, your family would have to find the money to cover all these expenses.

Help to protect those that depend on you

Naturally your children will always come first and, because of your hectic lifestyle, you’ll never give yourself a second thought.

But for your family’s sake it’s vital that you recognise your own considerable value.

Because when you do it’s easy to see why protection is so essential.

So what might your protection priority be?

To make sure your mortgage is paid off should you die.

To cover your mortgage and provide for your family if you become too ill to work.
