Disaster-Proof Your Life – Insurance Needs

Preet Banerjee (a prominent Canadian personal finance personality) explains insurance as “disaster-proofing your life”.  This description has always stuck with me – which is noteworthy, given that insurance-related topics don’t exactly scream “memorable”.  Insurance is one of those things that no one really pays attention to – until they badly need it.  Protecting yourself from a financial disaster should be one of your top priorities when it comes to your finances.  After all, what’s the use of putting all that energy into earning and saving if you aren’t going to take care of what you’ve worked so hard for?
