Stuart is a 39-year-old self-employed Chiropractor earning $150,000 per year. He is married to Roxy, and has two primary school aged children, both of whom attend private schools. His home is valued at $900,000 with a mortgage of $500,000.
Stuart is aware of how important his health is, so he makes it a priority to go to the gym every morning before work. One day, whilst at the gym, Stuart suffers a heart attack, collapses and passes away enroute to hospital.
Thanks to Stuart having Life Insurance of $1m in place, Roxy was well provided for and was able to:
- keep her home by paying off the mortgage;
- continue sending her children to private school; and
- delay returning to work immediately, thus being available to provide her children with the support they need to deal with their father’s passing.
This provided Roxy with enormous peace of mind, knowing that she and her children would be able to maintain their family home and current standard of living.
