“She paid hundreds of dollars every month for her son’s insurance but she could not claim a single cent when he was warded. As for me, my son left the hospital three days later without me having to pay a single cent, all because I had insurance for him that cost only hundreds of dollars per year.”

“My friend who had retired from the civil service lost more than half of his pension due to poor investment decisions. He was in his mid-sixties and had to continue working.”
