Dispelling Common Life Insurance Myths

There are a million and one reasons why people DON’T think they need life insurance but are these myths or reality?

A life insurance policy helps to protect your loved ones – ensuring they aren’t left with significant financial burdens after you’re gone. Makes sense doesn’t it? However, we’ve heard a million and one reasons why people DON’T think they need life insurance.

Here at FOMO we wanted to identify the most common myths and help to dispel them.
Prepare yourself for some serious reality checks!

Myth 1 “It’s too expensive”

With some policies starting at less than £5 per month (that’s cheaper than most streaming services!), life insurance cover certainly won’t break the bank for most people.

Myth 2 “Life insurance never pays out”

When applying for cover, if you answer all the questions truthfully there is little reason why your claim should ever be denied.

Myth 3 “I don’t have children so it’s not necessary”

Having children is an important reason to get life insurance, but it’s not the only one.

If you have a mortgage, but not life insurance, your partner – or those closest to you, might have to take on the payments after you are gone.

Myth 4 “I’m young, fit and healthy so I don’t need cover”

Even if you’re young and are in good health, if something were to happen to you, your loved ones will still have to cover the costs or any outstanding bills, your mortgage or rent and your funeral costs.

Plus, life insurance can be considerably cheaper when you’re younger.

Myth 5 “I’ll need regular health check-ups if I get covered”

When applying for life insurance you’ll be asked a few health-related questions such as if you smoke, have any pre-existing medical conditions or whether any conditions run in your family. In certain circumstances, you may also be asked to provide a health report or undergo an initial medical exam.

But, once your policy is in place you will not be required to provide or undergo any regular health check-ups!
