No one likes to think about what may happen to their loved ones should a sudden death occur. However, it's extremely important for people to discuss what they would do in such a situation. Talking about potential scenarios is the only way to ensure things will be taken care of as one would have wanted.
A major life insurance company recently surveyed more than 1,000 adults in the U.K. regarding retirement. They found that less than half made arrangements to ensure their partner would receive income from a pension plan.
Not ensuring loved ones will be taken care of financially is risky. The passing of a family member can be devastating enough without having to think of how to get by without income as well.
"Talking about money can be difficult enough for many couples but clearly talking about death and money is a step too far for millions," said Vince Smith-Hughes, a representative from the company.
Those who work in industries which require them to be a potentially hazardous conditions should consider life insurance and make sure they have legal documents in order to ensure their property and finances will be handled the way they want.
