Todays Date: November 16, 2018

Children leaving the nest can be a time that leaves you feeling relieved or saddened. Life, as you know it, will change significantly. Whilst understandably this time brings mixed emotions, it may also bring fresh opportunities.

Change in circumstances will probably alter your personal insurance needs, including home insurance. Here, we take a closer look at how your needs may change:

Discounts – If your kids are away at university you may be eligible for a student discount on your home insurance. On the other hand, you may be entitled to some senior discounts, and it is always worth checking what is available in your circumstances.

You may need less cover – If your children have taken their possessions (such as laptops of televisions) with them when they left, you may need less cover than you did previously. You can switch to a policy that better suits your needs and save some money in the process. Review your insurance policy today and see if you could be eligible for a cheaper policy.

Empty nesters in these conditions may therefore require and extra level home contents cover.

Downsizing – If you are downsizing from a large family home to one which better suits your scaled-back lifestyle, your home and buildings insurance needs will undoubtedly change. Re-assess your policy to ensure you are not paying more than you should be.
