When J and I got married, we decided to merge it all — bank accounts, credit cards, where we lived, even our last names (well, I took his last name, we didn’t really merge them together… that would be an awkward last name). It is such a long arduous process weeding through all of the legal documents and personal accounts to merge your life together.
Two years later and we are still navigating through it all, one area being insurance. We’ve got auto and home insurance taken care of, and have our own health care insurance through our jobs (thank goodness), but have yet to get life insurance. It’s on our list of things to take care of in 2014, along with writing a will. :)
The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) shared with me a newlywed insurance guide and I thought it may be helpful for some who are about to get married or have been dragging their feet on taking care of insurance items (like me). They are also giving away a $50 Home Depot gift card at the end of this post!
Sidenote: What year do you stop being a newlywed? After one year? Five years? I’m losing track of how long we’ve been married. A few months ago I told someone we’ve been married for three years (nope) and then at a party last week I said I had been married a year and a half (not true)! What’s wrong with me.
Now for the fun part. NAIC is awarding one lucky winner a $50 giftcard to Home Depot. All you have to do is leave a comment to enter, but there are more options if you want to enter more than once. I will announce the winner next Thursday (Dec 19th).
What would you buy if you won the giftcard?
I have so projects on my house to do list, I wouldn’t know where to begin! J made me promise not to do any big projects until 2014 (after all the work we did the first three weeks)… but y’all 2014 is coming!! :)
