Voluntary (self-pay) life assurance

Accidents will happen

The most common theme among all accidents—motor vehicle, fire, poisoning, etc.—is breaking the instructions, rules, and laws. So, yeah, there are times to be a rebel. Like when you drink a cup of hot coffee without that protective cardboard sleeve. And there are times to put your—and everyone else’s—safety first.
