Day 27 (PF)

BUDGET CHALLENGE: UNEXPECTED EVENTS   In this lesson students are introduced to the basic concepts of insurance. Insurance is an essential part of financial risk management, yet is very different from other aspects of a financial plan such as having an emergency fund or saving for retirement. Insurance is something you buy hoping you never have to use it. Auto insurance, life insurance and warranties are covered in this lesson. Because of its importance and complexity, health insurance is a separate unit. In the simulation, students will have the opportunity to choose between auto insurance plans with different deductibles and renter’s insurance with different coverage levels. In addition, cell phone plan options include a protection plan option. During the simulation, an unexpected event may occur that results in insurance being used. When this happens, students see firsthand how insurance works and the tradeoffs involved in purchasing insurance and choosing deductible levels.
