Indonesian society in general still do not make insurance a requirement for continuity of a family life. Therefore we try to give a review about the importance of insurance for the family finances, both short and long term. For example, life insurance (life insurance).
In brief, life insurance is the provision of funds to protect or sustain the family life of a loved one. If you are still naked and was not married then it might be better off if you buy health insurance (if there is no benefit from the company). Or maybe you can buy insurance for critically illness or critical illness insurance is called. With this insurance, if you are diagnosed, then you will get the money at once or sump yet, which can be used to meet your daily needs.

This value may be enough for some families but may also be less for some others.
