Young, free and single?

Why would you need protection?

If you're without the responsibilities of a family, it's easy to think you don't need protection.

Protect yourself

Ask yourself how your life would change if you couldn't work?

You might want to consider:

  • Could you afford to take time off work to recover?
  • How would you continue to pay the mortgage, rent or bills?
  • Would your debts start to become overwhelming?
  • Would you be forced to spend your hard-earned savings?

How might your lifestyle change?

Accidents happen and getting ill enough to be off work for an extended period is more common than we think.

If your circumstances were to change unexpectedly, think about your lifestyle and how you'd meet all those monthly payments. There’s the mortgage or rent, the car loan, the bills, the credit card debt and a social life that doesn't come cheap!

And what about the money you’re putting away for the future? Maybe you’re saving for a holiday, a new car, or you’re still working on the mortgage deposit.

The good news is that the younger you are the cheaper the monthly premiums will be. In fact you could be pleasantly surprised just how little you need to spend to put the right cover in place.

So what might your protection priority be?

If you’re just starting work your first priority should be to protect your lifestyle if you were to become ill.
