I am an anti-life insurance years back so to speak pero my outlook on how I see and perceive a life insurance has changed drastically. You ask me why?? First things first— What if your time comes long before you expect it— sige nga, how will your family survive especially if you are the bread winner?
Let’s face it – almost everyone needs life insurance! Kasi no matter how we’d like to believe otherwise, we all die, but none of us know the time and day. Ang dali sabihin, “ay oo nga noh, I need a life insurance” pero paano if hindi ka pa nga sumusweldo, meron ng naka-laan para sa matatanggap mo, worse—kulang pa. So papano nga if you hardly make it from paycheck to paycheck? How can you even consider life insurance? Nakapag-isip ka na ba? It’s really hard to comprehend things like these ones especially if you are struggling to pay your monthly bills! But what would happen if you were to die unexpectedly? Ano na ang mangyayari to your family that counts on you for basic need such as food, clothing and education? Iniwan mo na nga sila, naiwanan mo pa ng problema kasi hindi ka handa. How can they even afford to pay for your funeral?
You see, these are the things that kept me awake the other night when I’ve been contemplating on things that I've learned from the recently held launch of Country Bankers Life. Napaisip ako not just for myself but also with our kapwa kababayan na medyo kapos sa pamumuhay. I have so much realization about sa mga magiging benefits nila with the offerings and services of Country Bankers. Ang dami kasi sa mga kababayan natin— especially the ones who are located in rural areas who are almost always caught off-guard. Kawawa sila. That’s why I am writing this article to create awareness. Kasi hindi impossible sa ating fellow kababayans na magka-life insurance because it is affordable or very abot-kaya.
What really caught my attention was their Alalay sa Buhay (ASB) Plan:
