This is where a protection review comes in which is a comprehensive evaluation of your current protection plans, including life insurance, health insurance, and disability insurance. It takes into account your current financial situation, family structure, and future goals to determine if your existing policies are sufficient to provide the necessary protection for your loved ones.

"Assess your current financial situation!"

The first and most crucial step in a protection review is to assess your current financial situation. This includes evaluating your income, assets, and liabilities. By understanding your financial standing, you can determine how much coverage you need to maintain your family's current lifestyle in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Next, a review will consider your family structure. Are you married? Do you have children? Are your parents or other dependents relying on your financial support? These are essential factors to consider when determining the amount of protection your family needs. For example, if you have young children, you may need more coverage to provide for their education and living expenses in case of your untimely death.

Moreover, a protection review takes into account your future goals and aspirations. Do you plan on buying a house, starting a business, or retiring early? These goals will impact the amount of protection you need. For instance, if you plan on starting a business, you may need additional coverage to protect your business partners and employees.

Once your current financial situation, family structure, and future goals have been evaluated, a review will identify any gaps in your existing protection plans. These gaps may include insufficient coverage, outdated policies, or lack of coverage for specific risks. By identifying these gaps, you can make necessary adjustments to ensure your loved ones are adequately protected!

One of the significant benefits of a review is the peace of mind it provides. Knowing that your family will be taken care of in case of any unfortunate events can alleviate a significant amount of stress and worry. It allows you to focus on other aspects of your life without constantly worrying about the financial security of your loved ones.

Another benefit is the potential cost savings. By evaluating your current policies, you may discover that you are paying for unnecessary coverage or that there are more cost-effective options available. This can result in significant savings in the long run, allowing you to allocate those funds towards other financial goals.

"A protection review can also help you stay updated with changes in the insurance industry!"

Insurance policies and regulations are constantly evolving, and what may have been the best option for you a few years ago may not be the most suitable option now. A review can ensure that you are aware of any changes and have the most up-to-date protection plans for your family.

A protection review is a crucial step in ensuring that your loved ones are adequately protected. By evaluating your current financial situation, family structure, and future goals, a review can identify any gaps in your existing protection plans and provide peace of mind and potential cost savings.

So, take the time to review your protection plans and make necessary adjustments to secure your family's future.

Until next time ...

About Sam Bradford ...


I have been advising private individuals and businesses as a Financial Planner for over 20 years. I am a Chartered Financial Planner and Fellow of the Personal Finance Society and a Certified Money Coach.

As a Chartered Financial Planner, I hold the highest level of qualification available in the Financial planning profession as well as gaining a masters in Finance in 2021. I set up my own financial planning practice in 2020 to follow my passion of bringing straight forward, honest and easy to understand financial advice to those who need it.

I live in a 400 year old cottage with my husband, 2 dogs (Maia and Greg), 6 chickens and 3 beehives!

I love being outside and in nature and feel right at home digging in the veggie patch or going on road trips to the amazing UK countryside in our trusty camper van! I love being part of our local community and have volunteered as a scout leader for over 15 years as well as being the current President of the Rotary Club of Milton Keynes.

For fun, I also love all things creative from playing my accordion and guitar to painting and knitting! My most recent hobby has been to learn how to ring church bells at our local church (but this is still very much a work in progress!)
