Insurance is complicated, by design. Understanding it doesn’t have to be.

Life is a series of risk management decisions and that includes insurance. Here is how to know all the ways insurance can and should be used to mitigate risk. This text guides you through the basics of life, health, disability insurance, long-term care, property and liability insurance; and let’s not forget Social Security and managing personal credit. Using real data and real life examples, readers will soon understand risk retention, avoidance and shifts; and how to avoid the sidetracking of life plans by unexpected and uncovered risk.
