Don’t Forget Insurance for Your Expat Family!

We would be remiss if we did not mention the importance of purchasing adequate insurance coverage to protect your expat family members. Living abroad can carry additional safety and health risks for you, your partner and children. It makes sense to take steps to protect them. It is vital that you do the following if you are moving abroad with your family:

  1. Purchase international health insurance to protect your family members
  2. Buy expat life insurance to provide a pool of capital for your family members to live on should you die while living and working abroad. Many suggest you get at least 10 times your annual earnings and make sure all debts are paid off.
  3. Secure expat disability coverage to protect your income should you be unable to work because of sickness or injury.
