Are You Prepared For A Loss?

So much of the time we are more concerned about how much our monthly premium is than what we have to pay in a deductible should we have a loss.  We margin our deductible at a level in order to make our insurance premium comfortable, thus, in the time of a loss, we are not prepared to make the deductible payment.

For example, Susie has a business that is a high-end clothing store.  She has taken out business insurance to cover her investment but has set her deductible at a high level because she wants to keep her premium low.  When the time comes when Susie does suffer a loss, she is not prepared to pay the $10,000 deductible that she has requested on her insurance policy.

We need to prepare ourselves by saving money each week so we are can make the deductible payment should we experience a loss.  Isn’t that what insurance is really about, taking care of the loss when we actually have one?  So, put the money aside, and take care of yourself,  your business, your home and family by always having enough money to cover your deductibles on your insurance policy.
