One important step towards creating a solid financial plan is by protecting your most important asset. And the only way that can be done, is to keep your asset within the safe haven of insurance.

With this in mind, it becomes easier to understand that the right insurance policies usually go a long way toward helping you safeguard not only your earning power but also your possessions.

Here are three insurance policies to consider as a Nigerian:

1. Life insurance policies

When it comes to protecting the people that are financially dependent on you, think life insurance. Think about how much you earn each year and the number of years you plan to remain employed and purchase a policy that will replace that income in the event of your untimely demise. Factor in the cost of burial, too, as the unexpected cost is a burden for many families.

2. Permanent disability insurance

Nobody wants to admit that the activities of their lives can be affected by the possibility of permanent disability. It is a good thing to hope, but while we do, we should remind ourselves that relying on hope to protect our future earning power is simply not a good idea. Instead, choose a disability policy that provides enough coverage to enable you to continue your current lifestyle, even if you can no longer continue working.

3. Health insurance

The inflated cost of medical care is enough for one to prioritize health insurance. A serious injury that demands a hospital stay can generate a bill that only expensive can qualify. And injuries or any other health issues that require surgery can only birth an exorbitant bill. Although the ever-increasing cost of health insurance is a financial burden, for just about everyone, the potential cost of not having coverage is much higher.
