Life Insurance – Protecting Your Loved Ones Financial Future

Life insurance may be one of the most important purchases you will ever make.  Life insurance can help to protect against financial hardship resulting from death. It is an insurance company’s promise to pay your beneficiary for a specific life insurance benefit in the event of a tragedy.

Do I need life insurance?

The majority of life insurance is purchased to protect family members from financial hardship. If your family relies on your income, your death could impose a financial burden upon them. Additionally, if you own a business, you may need life insurance to replace a key employee, or to purchase the interest of a deceased partner. In the event of a tragedy the death benefit from a life insurance policy would typically be used for the following:

  • To replace income the family would need to maintain their standard of living after your death.
  • To pay off a mortgage loan and other personal and business debts.
  • To create a fund for children’s education.
  • To pay final expenses, such as funeral costs and taxes.
  • To create a family emergency fund or a fund for a family member with special needs.
  • In a business, to purchase the stock of a deceased business partner, or help defray the cost of losing a key employee.
  • To create an endowment for a favorite institution or charity.
