Welcome back to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

This week we are tackling another very important topic, one that everyone needs to consider and given our last conversation was about estate planning, I thought we'd stick with the worst-case-planning theme.  I've invited in a friend, former colleague and senior manager at one of Australia's retail insurance companies, Rachael Harney, to join me in having the life insurance conversation, because let's face it, these tough conversations are better shared! 

We tackle why personal insurances are (very) important to consider, the different types of insurances that are available and what they do, how to know if you’ve got a policy that will pay out, and the importance of seeking the assistance of a financial adviser to help you determine the amount of cover you need and how to best structure it.

It's a complex area, so we've included a handout in the link below to break it down a little further.


An overview of all the different types of cover as mentioned in the show and further information on insurance:
