Do I Really Need Insurance? + Philam Life #LiveBetter Expo

Do I need an insurance policy? I see insurance as a commitment. 

When I was younger, I used to go with mom to pay for my father’s insurance. She said that it would help in case something happens to him. He is still alive (thank God). Calculating how much we had paid the company, it is worth more than what we would get. My sister had an insurance policy too. We terminated it after she migrated in another country. At that time I thought I don’t need an insurance (especially that I got one as a benefit working for a multinational company). I thought, just like her, I would go places. 

Things are changing though – and so are my decisions. I have a couple of friends who are sending me proposals to start paying for an insurance for myself. I felt that I do not need one. But after attending the Philam Life #LiveBetter expo held at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center last August 25, 2017, I thought I need to sign up.

At one of the activities, they asked me to choose  – wealth creation, healthy living with perks or continuous earnings?

Not thinking twice, I chose Healthy Living with Perks. Having a healthy lifestyle enables me to do things and go places. I know it is easier said than done that’s why I try to find blanace in everything I do – from enjoying life’s surprises, indulging in sweet/salty cravings and exploring places while saving up for the future. 

The #LiveBetter expo takes us to different activities that highlights the brands four pillars – fitness, food, wellness and financial health. The event is in line with the company’s vision to help Filipinos live longer, healthier and better lives.

I love check-ups like this! People are most often afraid to see the results.

This is an interesting discussion. I love the idea of saving up for the future and getting rewarded for it.

Some of the benefits for signing up at Philam Life Vitality! 

I enjoyed participating in different booths with partner brands which allow me to get to know more of myself.

Philam Life Ambassadors Nico Bolzico, Solenn Heaussaff, and Mond Gutierrez joined in the event to encourage Filipinos to live a healthier and well-balanced life. Too bad, our favorite Wil Dasovich (who is also a Philamlife Ambassador) couldn’t join the event (get well soonest Wil!)

I love what Mond has shared that he was once content with his life until he felt the need to go healthier. Solenn reminded us that we can balance everything in life to stay active and healthy. 

“Through the #Live Better” Expo, we will be able to show Filipinos how they can live better through the different pillars of wellness. Live Better is not just our brand promise, but a commitment supported by Philam Vitality, the platform from which we can help them achieve it.  We have products powered by Philam Vitality that will allow them to earn points for knowing and improving their health. We are the only life insurance company who has the actual tools to deliver on the promise of helping Filipinos achieve total wellness” – Bernadette Chincuanco, Philam Life Head of Brand and Communications. 

I continuously want to enjoy life’s surprises and still be prepared for the unexpected.
