California households include every variety of size and make up. From singles to single parents; families that are “nuclear” to “extended”; and even homes where furry companions are beloved members of the family – with this amazing diversity comes a wide range of insurance and financial security needs.

Every kind of home and family needs the ability to customize insurance to their own requirements and budget. There are many important things to consider.

What concerns could affect your situation?

  • Upcoming college or trade education costs
  • Significant out-of-pocket medical costs, even with health insurance
  • Ineligibility for employer-sponsored benefits
  • Dental and vision care expenses
  • Accidents suffered by any family member
  • Future long term or home health care
  • Potential loss of income due to disability or death of wage earners
  • Risks of serious illnesses and their related expenses beyond medical care
  • Costly veterinary emergencies of family pets
  • Dangers of identity theft of a family member
  • Assistance needed because of illness or injury while traveling or studying abroad

The list can go on depending on your own circumstances. This is not to keep you awake at night thinking of the worst possible things that can happen. But knowing that you have protection in place – just in case – will help you rest easier. Taking some time to really think about what you need to take care of your health and finances does more than just protect you from the unexpected. Supplemental insurance premiums are predictable and low in cost to better plan your budget against large, sudden expenses.
