Welcome to Guide to Protection Matters. Ensuring that you
have adequate financial protection for you, your family and any
dependants is an important element of financial planning. As
a healthy working person with a good income, you may feel
reasonably confident that you are able to provide for your family.
However, your finances could be more precarious than you think.
No matter what the current economic environment, adhering to a
few sound and well-practiced strategies will help you to prepare
for the future. While your individual situation will always have its
unique qualities, our guide provides suggestions to consider as
you review your family’s long-term protection plans.
Financial protection benefits have become more important as
financial foundations have shifted, government resources have
been strained and costs have climbed. When people need them
most, benefits such as disability, accident, critical illness and
life insurance protect against financial hardships that can derail
their stability. Being prepared for the unexpected will protect
you and your family from sudden and long-term financial
hardship. It goes without saying that we need to enjoy our
wealth today, but at the same time ensure it remains there for us
and our family tomorrow.
