What is Insurance?
By Beth Beutler
1 "What are you doing, Mom?" Mom was sitting at the kitchen table with papers spread around her, working on some bills.
2 "I'm paying the bills, honey."
3 "Don't you wish you didn't have to pay bills?"
4 Mom laughed. "Yes, sometimes. However, I need to pay for things to help us live responsibly. For example, I am paying for our home, car, and life insurance this month."
5 I had heard about insurance before, but I didn't really understand what it was. It seemed as good a time as any to find out! I pulled out a chair and sat opposite of my mother.
6 "What is insurance, anyway, Mom?"
7 "Insurance is a service that we pay for to protect us in case of an emergency. For example, I pay car insurance so that if I get into an accident, the insurance company will give us money to replace the car."
8 "Do you pay home insurance for the same reason?"
9 "Basically. If the house gets damaged, or if someone gets hurt by accident, the company would give us money to pay for the repairs or doctor's services."
