Life is Unpredictable. Get Ready - #InsureU Giveaway

I received products in exchange for this post. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


After a winter like this, most of us are ready for a change. Spring is a time for renewal and planning — for some wedding bells will soon ring, while buyers and sellers are anxious to get into a new home. Tax refunds may even spark the desire to buy a new car. Spring can be exciting, but major life events have insurance implications. And all too often, people wait for something bad to happen before they worry about whether or not they have the right amount of coverage. The best time to get educated about insurance is when you’re in the process of making a major life decision, like buying a new car — before a related crisis, such as a car accident.


Get Ready
Insurance needs vary greatly by person, but there are some common life situations during which it’s especially important to ask the tough questions, including:
· Buying a New Car: Beyond the sale price, what other costs should I keep in mind?
· Getting Married: How might our individual credit and legal histories impact our combined financial future?
· Buying a New Home: How would I handle the financial burden of an unexpected disaster affecting my home?

If you’re in the midst of a major life event, new Get Ready resources from Insure U can help you get smart about insurance now, before a crisis, and avoid hasty, uninformed and costly decisions later. For the life situations mentioned above, Insure U offers 5 Tough Questions to ask yourself and Take Action Now checklists to help you get ready. Additional kits will be published this summer. For more tough questions to consider, plus supporting infographics, videos, apps and games, visit www.insureuonline.org.
Win It!

One person will win a “Life Kit”, similar to the one shown above, filled with several “surprise” items to help you get ready to navigate through life ($50 value).

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*

Changing jobs :) You have to get acclimated to the new environment, meet all your new co-workers, maybe be on a different schedule. That stress doesn't usually last long tho' :)

Omg...we have done all of those just in the last year! In fact, we've done some of them more than once this year. I'm not sure which is most stressful. Probably buying a house? But the car thing...I HATE car shopping!!

Buying a house was the most stressful thing I've ever done. Luckily it all worked out but a friend of mine who bought a house a little while before I did had major problems which gave me a lot to worry about.

Changing careers is always overwhelming to me. We will be buying a house within the next five years, and HOPEFULLY it will be a good experience, though it's never fun knowing how much you're forking over lol

If I ever owned a house I would say buying a house, but I don't. So I would have to say changing careers because I get very stressed out every time I start a new job. Luckily in the last 8 years I have only changed once.

Alison James said...

Buying a home as I have never owned a home. We have always rented.

Rebecca Orr said...

For me it I would be buying a home. We are renters with crap credit. Buying a house is impossible right now. But we are working on fixing our credit so we can one day buy a home. But I have seen a few family members go through the home buying process and it was long and difficult at times. In the end, they got the homes of their dreams. But it would be nice if the process was easier and less difficult at times,

I found buying a house very stressful at the end, because my lender delayed things which screwed up my moving date, and left me with less moving help than planned.
