September is Life Insurance Awareness Month

Are you protecting yourself and your family with this necessary coverage? In the event of a tragedy, life insurance can help pay the bills and mortgage, continue a family business, finance future needs (such as your children’s education), protect your spouse’s retirement plans, and much more. Life insurance plays a key role in having a sound family financial plan.

Life insurance is a necessity that you need today to help you prepare for tomorrow. What if you were suddenly gone and your family had to manage on their own? When was the last time you did the math to make sure your loved ones would be financially sound? Have you checked with your employer to find out what kind of life insurance benefit you have through work and if that will be enough to protect your family in the event of tragedy or terminal illness? When was the last time you had your life insurance needs reviewed by our agency?

While it is easy to overlook, life insurance is an absolute necessity to protect yours and your family’s financial future. It’s a subject no one really wants to think about, but if someone depends on you financially, it’s one you cannot avoid. In the event of a tragedy, life insurance can:

  • Pay for funeral costs
  • Help pay the bills and meet ongoing living expenses
  • Pay off outstanding debt, including credit cards and the mortgage
  • Continue a family business
  • Finance future needs like your children’s education
  • Protect a spouse’s retirement plans

 

Each year in September, insurance agencies and non-profit organizations across the country join together to try to help educate people about the high risk associated with not having proper life insurance coverage. We know that your family’s financial future is too important to leave at risk.

Even if you already have a life insurance policy, please consider reviewing your coverage this month to ensure that you have the proper policy for yours and your family’s needs. Many big life events, such as having children or buying a home, can affect your life insurance needs, and we’re here to help make sure you’ve got the protection you need.
