Can you keep your insurance if you lose your job?
The Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020 has changed the way we work, the way we live, and the way we think. A year ago, you may have been just a little jealous of any friends who were fortunately enough to work from home: no commute, no traffic jams, and flexible hours. Twelve months later, you are doubtless longing for the camaraderie of an office environment. For anyone who has experienced job insecurity in the past year, or has worried about the long-term viability of their position, one thing has become abundantly clear: relying on your employer for medical and life insurance is not a risk worth taking. To put this another way, comprehensive private medical coverage and life insurance calculated as a multiple of annual salary is only as secure as your job itself. Furthermore, depending on you position, your insurance may be limited to the country or region where you live, and not portable should you move to another part of the world. If you are in need of personal medical or life insurance coverage, or you believe it would be prudent to at least know what options are available, talk to your adviser in the JSG network or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the international private insurance options available to you and your family.
