Real-Life Drama Triggers Real-Life Incentives to Organise Life Insurance Premiums

Keeping up with the world and taking out life insurance

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2012) - If the ancient Mayan prediction is to be believed, the 21st of December 2012 marks the end of days.

The prediction is said to be made up of a variety of eschatological beliefs to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on 21 December, 2012. As it stands, various astronomical alignments prophesise the potentially catastrophic end of the world scenario.

However, mainstream scholars have not confirmed any such event.

Even so, it's enough to send shivers of alarm through the calmest of those in society. If the end of the world is indeed nigh, then preparations need to be made before the tides turn; or at least a mild cautionary plan.

If this feels a little too much like histrionic melodrama, it can still offer a sense of wonder at eternal anxiety of what to do if the worst occurs. What measures are put into place to ensure funeral costs are met and families are looked after and taken care of in the event of fatality?

Life insurance premiums don't necessarily need to be the harbingers of doom; instead they are forward-thinking safety nets that make sure life goes on in the face of worst case scenarios.

There are several providers that offer a variety of funeral plans and life insurance premiums that befit a range of needs and events. From mortgage life insurance to critical illness cover, all do their own job. The bottom line however is the same: they are present to protect after absence.

To put a positive counter spin on Mayan prediction, the New Age interpretation is that the 21st December, 2012 signifies the start of a new spiritual chapter for humanity, leading to better and brighter things. A progressive future makes preserving a safe and better life for the family a far more comforting prospect.
