Types of Insurance

Font Size


1.Motor insurance

This includes automobile, truck, motorcycle, aircraft, boat, or any other form of motorized transportation. It is perhaps the most common type of insurance, and is required by law in many countries.

Motor insurance covers the insured party against financial loss that he may incur to repair his vehicle or a third party’s in the event of an accident. In return for annual or semi-annual premiums, the insurance company is bound to pay any losses as described in the policy. Such a policy may include property, liability or third party, and medical coverage.

Property coverage insures damage to or theft of a vehicle; liability covers bodily injury or property damage that may occur as a result of the insured’s actions, and medical coverage pays any fees necessary for bodily injuries, rehabilitation and in some cases foregone wages and funeral costs.

In many countries, all of these types of automovile insurance are required of vehicle owners. In some countries, or states, only third party is required. However, in the case of new vehicles, any banks which may be financing the vehicle may require full insurance as a condition of financing.

If you have a larger vehicle, take a look at Autonet Van Insurance.

2.Health insurance

Most developed nations have government-funded health care which means that most or all citizens have access to medical facilities and treatment, as well as health insurance.

For example, the National health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom pays for citizens’ medical needs. However, in the US, there is no government-funded health policy - whether for insurance or treatment. As a result, US citizens and residents must be insured or risk facing astronomical medical bills, garnishing of wages, and bankruptcy. Often, medical insurance (both health and dental) is included in employee benefit packages in the US and other countries. Nevertheless, the issue of affordable health insurance and treatment in the US is one of the most controversial and heated topics, as many cannot afford either. If you live in a country without comprehensive national health care, then low cost health insurance is a vital requirement.

3.Disability insurance

This form of insurance protects workers from injuries and illnesses which prevent them from doing their jobs. It can pay for existing commitments the policyholders may have such as outstanding bills, mortgages, utilities, and more.

Workers’ compensation is common in the US, and pays a worker his wages and medical expenses in the event of an injury on the job.

Permanent disability which prevents a worker from ever working again is covered by total permanent disability insurance. This provides the disabled employee with benefits for the rest of his or her life, or according to the terms specified in the policy. Companies can purchase a similar type of insurance, called,disability overhead insurance. This pays for ongoing overhead costs of a business while the owners are not able to work.

A Catastrophic Health Insurance plan, also known as a high deductible health plan, is good to have for those who prefer to pay lower monthly premiums. If your plan is eligible for a Health Savings Account, you can use those funds to pay the deductible and out-of-pocket expenses which saves you money in the long run.
