4 Crucial Things You Forget As You Build Your Career

4 Crucial Things You Forget As You Build Your Career

You remember the day you got your first paycheck. You considered it as a milestone, because it was fulfilling and you can’t help but feel satisfied. Timecheck. Exactly how long has it been?

Gaining experiences and embarking on the career that you wish to pursue is one thing, but ticking of the goals off your life-list is another.

Whether it’s been a year or a decade, FGen Insurance has prepared a list of significant (and crucial!) things that you should have accomplished since you started working -- a bucket of reminders you must remember to periodically check to see whether you’re on the right track in life.

1. Giving time for the family

Have you finally allotted time for your loved ones? You might not have been aware, but you have probably taken their presence for granted during your busy days. Are your overtime hours worth it? Take a step back and make sure to cherish and revitalize your relationships, especially with your family.

2. Having a career you love

It’s been years since you graduated and started your career. Is your present job making you happy? Have you already built the small business you’ve always wanted to have as a kid? If not, today is the best time to start getting there.

3. Owning your dream property

Considered as a major life accomplishment, having a property of your own signifies your independence and stability. If you haven’t gotten your own yet, are you already in the process of attaining it?

Getting secure with insurance

You can only do so much when it comes to protecting your hard-earned possessions. Investing in insurance is one way of ensuring that your new property, or that small biz, is there to stay for the rest of your life.

FGen Insurance is committed in securing you, your family, and your future. Safeguarding your properties, your businesses, and even your vehicles, FGen is only a call away at 02 706 3959 for details on property, business, and/or motor car insurance.

FGen's Guide to PH Motorcycle Laws

Traffic jams are common experiences in the country, especially in Metro Manila. From long lines of congestions caused by vehicular accidents to just-selfish-driving of some, the motorcycle is becoming a convenient means of breezing through the time-consuming buildups.

Whether you already have your own motorcycle or you’re only about to buy one, FGen listed a guide to motorcycle regulations that you should be aware of before you ride that two-wheeler.

Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009 (RA No. 0054)

The Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009 mandates that all motorcycle drivers and riders to: wear standard protective helmets comply with the standards of protective helmets have protective helmets with ICC marks

The ICC, or Import Commodity Clearance, markings stand as proof of the compliance by the riders to the specifications provided by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

Anti-Distracted Driving Act (RA No. 10913)

Republic Act No. 10913 prohibits motorists from utilizing electronic gadgets while driving and/or at a temporary halt before traffic lights.

Covering all public and private vehicles, the Act prohibits any obstruction on both the attention and the line of sight of drivers. If this is prohibited for those driving cars, then it should all the more be prohibited for those riding motorcycles.

Remember: In motorcycles, a split-second loss of attention can spell the difference between getting to your destination on one piece or landing in a hospital emergency room, or even a far worse place.

Chapter VI, Amended Insurance Code (RA No. 10607)

Specified in  Chapter VI, Section 389 of the 2012 Amended Insurance Code of the Philippines is the mandate prohibiting the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to renew, or allow the registration of any motor vehicle without the presentation of documents evidencing the obtainment of insurance.

3 Answered Dengue FAQs

3 Answered Dengue FAQs

Dengue fever, a mosquito-borne disease, is a viral infection causing flu-like conditions and lethal fatalities. Transmitted through mosquito bites, the country, as a tropical host, is prone to having epidemics of the infection. 
 
From the first quarter of 2018, the Department of Health records 26,042 cases of dengue in the Philippines. Although having a 17% decrease when compared to the statistics of 2017, some regions experienced an increase in morbidity rates. According to the DOH dengue monthly report, these regions include Region I with a 98% increase, CAR with 61%, Region IVA at 40%, NCR with 30%, Region V with 28%, Region III at 5%, and Region II with 1%. 

Dangerous and still alarming, FGen answers three most important FAQs you need to know when faced with the rainy season and the possibilities of catching the infection. 

What are the symptoms of dengue?

Usually taking effect 4-10 days after the infected bite, symptoms of dengue include high fever and muscle pains. Fatigue, nausea, and skin rashes may also be present. 

How is dengue treated?

There are no specific treatments for dengue, but curing the infection is most concentrated through the improvement and maintenance of bodily fluids. 

I already suffered from dengue before - can I get it again?

Dengue has four stages or strains, and complicating dengue once doesn’t mean you’re already immune to all. Even if you suffered from the infection earlier, you still have a fair, if not higher, chance of getting one again.

Prevention is always better than cure, but being ready for the worse cases is best. FGen now offers Mosquitronella insurance, with Php 10,000 cash assistance at the price of Php 350.00. This is also available for viral complications of Zika and Chikungunya.
