When financing a purchase, taking out insurance may help protect you or your loved ones in case of disability or death.
If you already have insurance, check whether it is sufficient, or take out additional insurance if need be.
What if the merchant requires that you take out insurance before entering into the contract? This must be clearly indicated in the contract, which must include a mandatory clause (41.0 KB) to that effect.
You are under no obligation to take this insurance with the merchant in question. You always have the option of fulfilling this condition with an insurance contract you already hold, or shop for one elsewhere.
