Simple Life Insurance vs. Traditional Life Insurance

lifeInsurance-300x202Let’s face it. We don’t always have total control over our lives – unexpected things can and do happen. However, we can take steps to reduce the damage those unexpected things cause. Life insurance is one of those steps.

Think of all the people in your life who count on you: your spouse, your kids, and possibly others. How would they cope financially if something happened to you? This is such an important question to ask ourselves.

While it’s never too early to plan for the unexpected….it can be too late.

Let’s be honest: we all know there are some drawbacks to buying life insurance. We have to meet with the agent, then have a medical exam, then the insurance company requests doctor records, etc… It can be a long process from signing the application to having the policy issued – the average time can be 2-3 months.

Good news….This is what the process use to look like.

In 2015, we now have a new and simple way of purchasing life insurance coverage.

Tell me how you like this scenario? …You meet with your agent, sign the application, receive a decision within 72 hours, and have a life contract in your hands within 7-10 days? There is NO blood work, NO labs, and NO parameds... NO Waiting!

The types of products that are available for this type of program are:
1. Term Life
2. Universal Life
3. Whole Life

Since there are no medical exams, Simplified Life Insurance of this type will cost a little bit more than traditional life insurance. The reason for this is that the best rating class will be “Standard.” What this means is, if a person went through the traditional process and had the medical done, they could conceivably be rated “Preferred” and get a better premium rate.

The decision to be eligible to buy a simple life policy versus a traditional life policy will be made with you and your agent.

Some valid facts why Simplified Issue Life Insurance may be for YOU:
1. You don’t like needles
2. You want more privacy
3. You want the insurance sooner than later.

You have one life, and many people rely on you. The choice can be simple or traditional.

You would never think of not buying insurance for your car, house, boat etc. Yet many of us go without insuring our own lives. Contact your agent today to find the best way to insure YOU! Please, we urge you not to let your most important asset go uninsured.

I have worked with various individuals at Petschauer and have found each to be responsive, courteous, and thoughtful. Each year, the contact for my auto policy proactively seeks new bids and has consistently saved me money on my policy.

I have been with Petschauer Insurance for over twenty five years. The staff is knowledgeable and professional. Petschauer writes both my personal and commercial insurance and they provide excellent counseling. I truly trust the firm and their staff. Thank you.

I have had the pleasure of working with various members of the Petschauer Team, both personally and professionally for 20+ years. And I couldn’t have done it without them. They go above and beyond. Heidi, Narima, Sherri and LuAnn don’t just bring to us the products they offer, they help me to understand the specifics and evaluate what makes the most sense for me, my family and my employees. I always feel I have a better understanding of an industry I have no understanding of so that I can evaluate the offerings in a smart way, cost effective way. They are proactive with renewals, allowing us the time to do our due diligence, evaluate our plans to be sure we’re properly covered and are always there to listen and help with special circumstances. Their kindness, caring and willingness to lend an ear when needed, really makes them stand apart from the rest. Heidi and her family have built a beautiful culture at Petschauer and I highly recommend them to anyone I meet.

Spence-Chapin has had the pleasure of working with the wonderful John Petschauer, Inc. for 15+ years. They have always provided excellent service to us–with great knowledge, expertise, and patience — even in the most challenging situations. There has not been one time when they have not been immediately accessible to us, even at a moment’s notice. We thank them for their work and celebrate their 60th anniversary, while looking forward to working with them for another 60 years and beyond!
My family and I are long time personal and business clients of Petschauer Insurance. We sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the quality of service that Petschauer provides. We have recommended your company to others because of our satisfaction with your service. We look forward to doing business with you for years to come.

My company has called on Petschauer Insurance for many years for its insurance needs: liability, liquor, auto, etc. Working with Erwin and his team has been a pleasure from beginning to present. They are quick to answer any question and provide sound advice. I have always felt that my and our needs are important to them, in theory and practice. They go the extra mile, and we continue to be well served.

I have been with Petschauer Insurance for a long time. My account executive Lori Halloran is like family to me: she is always there when I need her and is very knowledgeable and understanding. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my insurance needs.
