It is never easy to write about a safety measure, especially when the measure is as grave as death. It is quite scary even to imagine how life would be for the people you love when you are not around. I once heard someone say, the dead are no more, but it is the living who continually suffer. True, one can never fathom the gravity of emotions and it is never easy to handle a situation like that. Probably it is impossible to plug the gap in the emotional aspect. But we can at least ensure that the physical and the basic requirements are taken care of.
And perhaps nothing comes as basic as finances in the current day scenario. As a family, if you are the earning member on whom the family depends for their expenses, it also becomes an onus on you to plan out the financial aspect for years to come. Of course, one way is to live in your means with the earnings you make and keeping your expenses minimal. It perhaps works perfectly well when you are there to take care of things. But god forbid, when things are beyond your control, it becomes a necessity to plan ahead as well.
We are all familiar with the life insurance plans and most of them pay out a specified amount upon the calamity and the amount certainly helps to take care of the loans, investments which comes to the rescue of the family in the future. But what if there was a way to plan out the way it was disbursed as well? What if there was a mode where the disbursal would happen in a flexible mode where a lump sum amount is paid initially and an opportunity is provided to offer a monthly disbursal over a longer period of time? In other words, the family would still get your salary even when you are not around and the monthly day to day expenses are taken care of. Wouldn’t that be a bit of a relief?
Somehow, somewhere we need to move out of the culture of fire fighting. It is nice to hope that things will be smooth, but we all need a contingency plan. Of course, none of these can ever fulfil an emotional aspect of a loss but, it sure reduces the financial pressures so that you can focus on what lies ahead.
