Is it Time To Purchase Life Insurance?

September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. As your local independent insurance agency, we are here to make you aware of the benefits of purchasing a life insurance policy. There are many options to choose from so if you have specific questions, reach out to our agency!

Life insurance is designed to provide financial stability to your family if you pass away. Life insurance policies vary with how they can provide financial support. It could pay for monthly bills, funeral expenses or provide a lump sum of cash.

When Should You Consider a Life Insurance Policy?

If your family relies on your income to pay monthly expenses, you should consider a life insurance policy.

Other scenarios typically can be:

  • You recently bought a home
  • You have a child or multiple children
  • You are getting married
  • You are a financial resource for your parents
  • You pay for long term care for your child or parents
  • You plan to pay for your child’s college degree

The younger you purchase a life insurance policy, the cheaper your premium typically is. Life insurance is calculated by your age, health status, medical history, occupation, your behavior and the type of coverage you want.

Coverage Options for Life Insurance

There are many types of life insurance you can purchase. The two most common policies are term life Insurance or whole life insurance. Term life insurance is designed to cover you for a specific amount of years, where whole life insurance is for your entire life.

Other coverage options include universal life insurance, variable life insurance, mortgage replacement insurance or final expense insurance.
