Balancing premiums between insurance and investments

Hi Terence, I follow you on twitter and enjoy your posts and podcasts. A topic I would like you to discuss is how to balance the mix between contributions to life cover, dread disease and retirement investments. I have 2 children - the youngest being 12 and I am the sole breadwinner in the family. My strategy has been to take care of life cover first to the value I think is necessary to sustain my wife to death incl kids education (incl existing retirement savings). Severe illness I have some cover and then the balance goes to investments (mostly RA). Regards JP

Thanks JP for reaching out and asking such a great question.

Please send your questions to me via email or WhatsApp 083 3379576

Take care and stay safe.

Life Insurance and the benefits

Do you have life insurance? Is it forever or for a term? Does it have illness cover, disability cover and income protection? Will it pay out tax free or be taxed? How will you afford to pay for it with annual increases?

Wow so many great questions, which I answer in this podcast.

I got retrenched! What do I do with my pension?

These options apply whether you have been retrenched, resigned or dismissed.
