Protecting Your Family

familyProtecting Your Family and Your Home.

For many families, buying a house is one of the largest and most important investments they will make. Buying a house typically means taking out a loan for thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Loaning this much money means continual payments, usually for many years.

Borrowing that large of an amount of money is not something to take lightly. When borrowing this much money, people are prepared and planning to pay at least the minimum required payment. Because of the huge expense that houses typically are, many families require two incomes to pay for basic monthly costs and mortgage payments.

Do you have a mortgage payment? If so, have you ever thought about what would happen to your mortgage if something happened to you? If you passed, would your family be able to pay the mortgage payments? If not, have you considered the fact that they could potentially lose the house?

If something happened to you, and you are the main source of income for the family, how would your family get by? Would your family run the risk of being homeless without your financial support?

These questions are serious and disheartening, but important to consider and plan for as best as possible. It’s hard to imagine leaving your family, but it is even harder to imagine your family struggling financially should you pass. Even harder than that is imagining your family losing their home, in addition to you, and potentially not having a place to live.

Although thinking of these situations is hard, it’s important to plan for your family. Taking the initiative to plan for unexpected situations has proved many times to be a lifesaver. If your family depends on you financially, the only thing you can do to ensure that they will always have what they need is to plan ahead for life after you’re gone.

As morbid as it may seem, it’s important to remind yourself that people die unexpectedly all of the time. Some people accidentally, others tragically, and still others from health issues. No one spends their life planning to die. That’s no way to live. You can, however, take the simple steps to insure your mortgage and save your family some financial grief. The loss of a loved one is hard enough without factoring in the financial stresses that come along with the emotional and physical loss.

Let this be your motivation to take action and protect your family. They are depending on you, and will need and appreciate your love, care and planning, even after you are gone.
