What’s cooking? 3 key voluntary insurance policies for women

Today’s woman may bring home the bacon, but don’t count on her to fry it up in the pan: A recent study shows that more men are cooking than at any time in the past 30 years. In fact, 43 percent of men are heating things up in the kitchen and they’re spending more time doing so: an average of 49 minutes daily.1

While men are bringing things to a boil, what are women up to? Four in 10 are the sole or primary breadwinners for their families,2 yet married mothers do more than three times as much cooking, cleaning and laundry as married fathers.3

Women’s financial and family contributions are hard to replace

Because women’s contributions to their families are financial, physical and emotional, they should consider what would happen to their loved ones if they were suddenly without an income or, worse, out of the picture altogether.

There are three key voluntary insurance policies women should consider – and that employers should consider making available – when it comes to helping protect families. They are life, disability and cancer/specified-illness insurance. Here’s why:

  1. They say it’s wise to expect the best but prepare for the worst, and life insurance is the perfect example of that adage. Women make major contributions to their families’ quality of life. That’s especially true today, when so many women are caring for aging parents as well as children.

    When a woman dies, the effect can reverberate both emotionally and financially through several generations of her family. This is true whether she is a working mother or a stay-at- home mom. After all, mothers who do not work outside the home perform tasks with significant financial value, such as cleaning, cooking, driving and caregiving. Hiring someone to perform those tasks would be costly.

    Life insurance coverage is important to women because without it, their loved ones’ standard of living might change dramatically. Benefits can be used to pay leftover medical costs or for bills such as the monthly mortgage or rent, household expenses, caregiving costs – even to ensure a child can do something as simple as continue dance lessons or as momentous as attend college.

  2. Life insurance coverage is important to women because without it, their loved ones’ standard of living might change dramatically.Disability insurance protects a working woman’s most valuable asset: her ability to earn a living. Many women prefer to believe that a disabling accident or illness is something that happens to others and not to them. But consider that a female 25-year-old office worker with a healthy lifestyle has a 24 percent chance of becoming disabled for three months or longer during her career, and there’s a 38 percent chance her disability will continue for at least five years.4

    Women often place their families before themselves, and that means they may postpone doctor visits or treatment while they care for their husbands, partners, children or parents. Unfortunately, this puts them at greater medical risk because they sometimes let an injury or illness progress before seeking attention.

    In the event of sickness or accidental injury, disability insurance helps provide peace of mind and financial protection. Policyholders can use disability benefits to pay the bills that continue to roll in even when their paychecks don’t. Whether they earmark the money for gas or electric bills, auto payments, credit card bills or to put food on the table, coverage allows women to focus on what’s most important: getting well.

  3. Research shows that men are more likely to get and die of cancer, with leukemia and cancers of the colon and rectum, pancreas and liver killing 1.5 to two times as many men as women in the United States over a 30-year period.5 Still, the American Cancer Society estimated that 852,630 women would be diagnosed with cancer in 2017 – and that’s no small number. Cancer/specified-disease insurance can go a long way toward helping women focus on recovery, rather than on financial concerns.

    A voluntary policy helps protect a patient’s income and savings from expenses that aren’t covered by major medical insurance, including deductibles; out-of-network specialists; experimental cancer treatment; travel and lodging when treatment is far from home; child care and household help; and normal living expenses, such as the monthly mortgage or rent, car payments, credit card payments, food and utility bills.
