Pay for insurance annually

– moneysense.ca

Pay for insurance annuallyAlmost everyone pays their insurance premiums monthly, but according to Chad Larmond of Larmond Risk Management Insurance, that’s not wise. “By paying annually, you will save 7% to 9%,” he says. There are three things working against you when you pay monthly. First, there is an administrative cost to process your premiums. Second, insurance companies charge you for the time they have to wait to get your money. Third, it’s an opportunity for insurance companies to profit from people’s aversion to paying premiums: People will happily pay more for the appearance of keeping their payments low.
