My early life experience had taught me to take care of myself and family by preparing for the future. You see, my dad died after 4 days in a hospital and incurring over half a million bill.
His Intensive Care Unit (ICU) confinement skyrocketed us into the pits of bankruptcy in just 4 days. Widowed at the age of 39, my mom was at loss on how to settle the hospital bills and how to go on rearing 4 children!
Our family was dumbfounded then with circumstances that have changed overtime! It placed us in financial difficulties and future uncertainty. My 39-year old father succumbed to complications of a gunshot wound he sustained during a robbery-hold up incident. I can still recall those sad memories surrounding his untimely demise on March 29, 1987.
I was angry at those who killed my dad, but can only pray for justice (elusive to this day). My youngest brother (then 4 years old) was clueless. I felt helpless, as we were all robbed of our future and of a father's love. Young as I was, I faced a crossroad-- should I continue on to college or grab the first job that would come my way after highschool graduation (which was a week after his interment).
Thanks to his planning, we were able to start anew and go on with our lives.
Proceeds fron my father's life insurance coverage helped in settling the bills. He made certain that the family he left behind will continue to have monetary back up in case of any untoward incident or death.
At 16 years old, I have learned that an insurance offers a hedge against unforeseen events. It provides protection against hospitalization expenses, fire, or any disaster that may strike. Insurance coverages remove the money burdens and guarantee that the insured’s beneficiaries will be financially secured. In a world of uncertainties, having an insurance coverage helps ease unrelenting doubts on a family's future.

I was not aware of your story, I am sorry for your loss. It must have been a really difficult time for your mother and your family to lose your father at such a young age and in such a most fortunate way. Your story best illustrate the importance and significance of getting an insurance.ReplyDelete

Sorry to hear about what happened to your dad. Hugs! I am a believer of insurance, too, that's why my family is covered. I got this from my grandparents pa. I went to university with my insurance coverage as allowance. I hope Filipinos will be more aware of its benefits.ReplyDelete
