There are many different types of insurance that residents of Denver often purchase. However, most people would probably not think that they could purchase a policy that would cover them in the event of a divorce. However, according to Coverhound, these types of insurance policies do, in fact, exist.
A person who purchases a policy would receive a payout in the event their marriage ends in a divorce. This may be very useful as, depending on the circumstances, divorces can be expensive. Unlike a prenuptial agreement, the policy is not subject to scrutiny by the court and will not be considered a marital asset. In addition, a person can take out this policy on their own and their spouse does not need to be involved in any way.
One insurance company is now offering a product that specifically covers those who are divorced and have lost their jobs, according to ABC10 News. The insurance covers a person’s child support and alimony payments for the duration of their unemployment. Unemployment benefits are only a fraction of one’s salary and are often not enough to fully cover a person’s monthly expenses.
The premiums are based on what type of job the insured has. People who work in industries that are prone to layoffs can expect to pay higher premiums for this insurance. Considering that many young adults do not have ample savings or a financial safety net in the event of a setback like losing their jobs, a market for this type of insurance policy may exist.
