    Post Question: cover off the short-term or not short-term

    Example.
    That insurance product is very good to cover off the short-term-or not short-term, but very definable liabilities, i.e., when you have a young family.

    Question.
    I don't know whether "cover off" is a phrase.

    I'd like to know what the underline part means.

    ((Not a teacher))

    "Cover off" in this sentence means to use "something" for some other purpose.

    Eg: I used my savings to cover off my daughter's education loan.

    The underlined sentence means that the insurance product can be used to pay-off temporary liabilites (short-term) or not short-term liabilities.
