#ad Metlife Your Finances And Your Future: Are You Prepared?

This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.
In life, we learn so many lessons, some good some bad, but all lessons we take along with us. I know that over the years, after having kids, when it comes to money, my husband and I have learned to become more frugal. Saving every penny we can, and having money put aside for those moments that come along, the ones that are unexpected, like when the kids get sick, or one of the vehicles need a repair. It is something, that 10 years ago, I had never considered. Before having a family, I spent money quicker than it was put in my hands on payday, and once I started having those responsibilities add up, like diapers, when the babies got sick or when I got a flat tire, I found that having the money in a savings account for those moments is the only way to do things. Aside from the emergency money, I also know that having insurance that can help save money in the long run is also a necessity. Things come up, times change and along with that, so does the economy. One of the hardest things that my husband and I had to face was job loss. At the time, we quickly found that having that savings was a life saver. I know that the loss of a job is the biggest concern that is out there, it seems that nowadays, jobs are not as stable as they once were. Even those who have been in a certain field or working at a certain place most of their lives, find that those jobs are not always going to be there, especially in this economy. You also have the issue with wages in some fields, and the fact that the cost of living is continually going up. So when I see the statistics on my generation, as shown below, I can relate. I know that enrolling in the best plans for my family is ideal, finding a policy that will not only cover the needs of my family, but that is also something we can afford is ideal. I also know that with having kids, making sure that my husband and I have a life insurance policy in place, is needed. On top of that, we also need to make sure that we have a great disability, accident, critical illness and home and auto insurance policies that fit our families needs. For me, being able to have all of these covered by one company is the way to go, so that I am not having to scurry and look for the bills, and try to keep track of which policies have been paid and which I still need to make a payment on at the beginning of the month. So having all the non-medical needs covered by one company is comforting (MetLife). It is also comforting to know that MetLife has been there for individuals and families for over 140 years, providing them with the coverage they need. They understand needs, they understand that not everybody is the same, so this season, while you are filling out those forms from work, or when you are searching for the ideal policies for you and your family, then check out what MetLife has to offer and make the right choices!

The statics shown above is very scary. Life insurance is important, but I think with today's economy many families don't have it or even think about it.

I have never had insurance with MetLife but I have heard good things about them prior to reading your post as well.
