Although it may feel good to be living the independent life no man is an island! In today’s world where members of a family live in the same house but in their own worlds, each engaging to their own activities, watching their own TVs and reaching out to their circles with personal phones and their computers. However, there is oneness of purpose and mutual support. The word ‘insurance’ in our society is sprinting far ahead of itself with a business growth.  The insurance industry is catching people’s imagination; all of it has to do with getting new products and better service.  

The concept of insurance appears simultaneously with the evolution of human society. In the ancient period were the human beings depends on natural economy (without money, markets, financial instruments and so on), insurance was in the form of people helping each other. Insurance became far more sophisticated in modern society and variety forms of insurance have developed. The worth of insurance is raising all the time and many people are now starting to consider it as one of life’s necessities. People need insurance because the unexpected may happen in the life. The financial consequences might be devastating if one is uninsured. Insurance helps people have peace of mind when life's unexpected events happen.
