#36 | Results from 5th March

Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.


Do you have life insurance?

Graph of results to the question "Do you spend on yourself?" 39% say that they do occasionally, whilst 35% say they only do so when necessary.

51% of us do not have any life insurance. While just over 43% of us either have it or are thinking about it.


Whether we need life insurance, depends on if we have a partner, children or family who depend on our income to cover the mortgage or other living expenses.


With over 90% of our cared for living with us (Mobilise Moments #2) it's important to be sure our cared for aren't reliant on our income for their home, or to have an alternative plan in place if the worst were to happen.

The Money Advice Service has further information and advice around Life insurance. And is well worth a read, if this has raised any questions for you.
