Welcome to this session of grand rounds, a collection of posts I have discovered in the blogosphere and have found of interest and hope you do too.
This offering of Grand Rounds looks at articles from around the web that deal with how to protect yourself via insurance.
When insurance salespeople are tasked with hitting minimum quotas to maintain employment with their company it is no wonder that they are all about the hard sell.
It is more about volume than putting a client’s best interest at heart.
Most of the time these policies are kept behind closed doors so that the company can at least try to maintain an image of helping its clients.
Therefore it was refreshing to see a wonderful guest post on White Coat Investor of not one but two former individuals in the industry titled, “Confessions Of A ‘Financial Advisor.’”
Spoiler: Combining an insurance product and an investment product typically profits only the company that offers it.
One of the biggest concerns an early retiree faces is how to deal with health insurance premiums now that an employer is no longer partially subsidizing that cost.
With healthcare costs continuing to rise greater than the rate of inflation, this can indeed be quite daunting.

White Coat Investor helps educate us on Asset Protection so we can avoid mistakes and protect ourselves with his article, “20 Things You Need To Know About Asset Protection.”
For those fans of the reality show, Big Brother, one of the famous tag lines is, “Expect The Unexpected.”
Unfortunately this does not just apply to reality TV and can certainly take you by surprise in everyday life.
It is imperative to have a plan in place in case something happens to you or your loved one so the survivor can make the transition as smooth as possible.
Cory Fawcett had a reader submit a story highlighting just how helpful it was for her to have everything in place when her husband tragically died in, “My Solo Practitioner Spouse Died Unexpectedly.”
Hope you enjoyed the reading material.
Have a great rest of the week.
