Housewives is called homemakers for a reason. They transform a house into a home. Their efforts, love and care give a warm vibe to a house that makes it a home. Her absence, on the other hand, can exactly do the opposite. Realising the value of a housewife’s contribution to a household, insurance companies are now offering term insurance for housewives. Though it is impossible to replace her, financial protection ensures the smooth running of the household in her absence.
The role of a housewife is as integral as the role of the earning member in the family. As an earning member ensures that his family is well protected financially, even after he is not around. Similarly, it is very important that a family is well taken care of in the absence of a housewife. The impact of a housewife’s sudden demise or illness will put a substantial financial burden on the family in addition to emotional setbacks. The cost of replacing her services will add to the monthly expenses. Therefore, a term plan helps secure the lives of female homemakers and enhance the financial coverage of the entire family.
