Since I have become a parent all my priorities in life have changed completely. I don’t leave the house on Friday nights anymore and I am no longer concerned with what clothes I wear or the latest movie to hit the big screen unless of course it is Angry Birds or the BFG!
I just love that saying that does the rounds on Facebook. If Bob the Builder didn’t make it and Barbie didn’t sing it then I just don’t know what you are talking about. This is just so true.
Ok so I am talking about trivial things here, but let’s get serious. Let’s talk about death. What happens to your children when you die?
Yes I know, this is not a nice topic to discuss but it is something that needs to be looked at. My blog so far has focused on topics like preparing for birth, bonding with your unborn baby and breast feeding your baby.. but what happens if you are not around to look after your child?
I remember clearly the week after we found out we were pregnant, my husband came to me and asked me for my identity number and some personal details so he could take out life insurance (no we weren’t married at this time so he didn’t have any of my information). I must have looked quite shocked but he looked at me and told me that if anything happens to him his baby must be looked after.
This is one of the things I love about my husband. He takes his responsibilities very seriously. No matter what happens I can trust that our children will be looked after.
What have you got in place in case you and/ or the father of your children dies? Who will look after your children and what finances will be available for their upkeep and their education?
I have been playing around with the Different Life Insurance cost calculator which will give you a good idea of the cost of life insurance and what you will receive for that premium including salary protection, disability cover and critical illness cover.
I also checked out their Live Chat and had a nice chat with Agnes about the different aspects of the life cover. I also checked out their call back option on their website. I was impressed, Catherine from the Different Life call center called me immediately and was very friendly and helpful.
Different life also offers something completely different which is their Different Donations section. When you sign up with Different Life your first payment and every yearly anniversary payment goes to Different.org which is an online crowdfunding platform that is funded by Different Life.
There are loads of different projects on the go and you can choose which project you want your Different Donation to go to. 100% of the donations go to the project and you can follow the progress of each project and also see all the donations that have come in.
The projects that are shown are just the sort of things that I really approve of and that I think can make a massive impact on our country.
I don’t know about you but I have often wanted to help people in our country but I often get rather skeptical about where all the money really goes to and how it is being spent. With Different Donations everything is transparent and there for you to see and follow which makes this the ideal place to donate money to.
So please go and check that out.
From what I can see here Different Life is not just about life insurance it is about uplifting others and our country which is certainly something that is needed in this day and age. For me I like to form personal relationships with people and businesses and I like to know that I matter, that I can make a difference.
I personally recommend Different Life and I suggest considering them for your life insurance needs. I will be because although my husband has done the mature thing it has taken me years to get around to getting life insurance for myself.
