You Can Save For Your Child’s Future - Leadway Assurance

Parents are often concerned about the future of their children and what might happen if they die before their children become of age to fend for themselves.

Studies have shown that Nigeria in particular, loses more young parents to any number of causes: cancer, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, renal disease, maternal mortality, violent crime and motor accidents amongst others.

What is often the fate of the young ones left behind, after the loss of a breadwinner?

Would there be a new dawn?

According to the United States’ National Alliance for Grieving Children, “the death of a family member, friend or other significant person is a lifelong loss for children.

In Nigeria, this problem is exacerbated by negative cultural beliefs, whereby relatives, including extended family members, are allowed to share the assets of the deceased as of right, disregarding the children and their needs in a future without their parent.

The Leadway Education Protection Plan (EPP) is designed to ensure your child’s education is uninterrupted if they suddenly find themselves bereft of your protection.

The Plan guarantees that their school fees will continue to be paid until they graduate from school, thereby ensuring that your dream of a quality education for your precious one is not cut short.

Death, though, difficult to cope with, shouldn’t interrupt the path you have set them on. You owe your children a quality education and you should go all out to ensure it.
