As part of Life Insurance Awareness Month, we would like to take this opportunity to shed light on the valuable benefits of purchasing life insurance. This is a chance to ensure your family is protected, accommodated, and comfortable in the event of your absence. Allow us to share some of the ways life insurance can take care of your family and potentially mitigate pressing expenses.
Income Replacement: If you’re the primary earner, your family depends on your livelihood. Life insurance can help your family cover the costs of expenses such as:
Mortgage: A mortgage may prove to be difficult to pay for as your family transitions to living life in your absence. The death benefit could help cover this cost while they adjust.
College Expenses: The death benefit could help cover tuition expenses for your children. It may take your spouse some time to find a job in your absence. Even then, there will be other expenses to account for and this benefit would allow your children to continue college with a smoother transition after their mourning period.
Child Care: If your spouse must work additional hours in your absence to supplement income or require assistance watching over young children, there may be a need for child care services. The death benefit can help pay for this expense.
Final Expenses: Your life insurance can also cover expenses related to your death, including:
- Last Rights
- Medical expenses you leave behind that may not have been covered by health insurance.
Life insurance will offer your family some peace of mind while going through this sad and difficult time. Everyone’s situation is different, so feel free to contact us and we can tailor a plan that best fits your family’s needs in your absence.
