Protect what matters

As we've established, insurance can help to protect you from almost any risk you face in life. Deciding what to protect with insurance is a matter of personal choice. It's a question of reflecting on what's important, both to you personally and for the people you love.

Here's a reminder of the main points:

  • you can use insurance to protect yourself, the things you love and the people you love.
  • your protection needs change, so be prepared to review what protection you have in place at various stages of your life.
  • consider making a will, and other steps you can take to protect a spouse or partner, children, or other loved ones.
  • getting to grips with some of the terms used in the insurance industry will help you to buy appropriate insurance products for your needs.
  • building emergency savings can help to protect you from unexpected costs.
  • money and mental health are linked, so remember that looking after yourself involves more than just your physical health.
  • identity theft and fraud is on the rise, so keep your personal details secure, and learn what to do if you become a victim of identity fraud.


Protecting your overall wellbeing is an important part of protecting yourself.
When it comes to protecting your loved ones' health and financial futures, you have options.
Insurance may protect you and your loved ones while also being a helpful saving mechanism.
Familiarise yourself with the terms you may come across as you explore insurance options.
