What’s the best gift to give your loved ones? family3

It’s called Life Insurance also known as Life Assurance, but it could just as easily be labeled Love Insurance. Buying life insurance is really an expression of love. It lets loved ones know that you care so much that you’ve made plans to provide for their well- being…even after you’re gone.

Why do I need Life Insurance…

If someone will suffer financially when you die, chances are you need life assurance. Life assurance provides cash to your family after your death. This cash (known as the death benefit) replaces your income and can help your family meet many important financial needs like funeral costs, daily living expenses and college funding. What’s more, there is no income tax on life insurance benefits.

Most people need life insurance. To figure out if you need life assurance, you need to think through the worst-case scenario. If you died tomorrow, how would your loved ones fare financially?   Would they have the money to pay for your final expenses (e.g., funeral costs, medical bills, taxes, debts, legal fees, etc.)? Would they be able to meet ongoing living expenses like the rent or mortgage, food, clothing, transportation costs, healthcare, etc? What about long-term financial goals?

Without your contribution to the household, would your surviving spouse be able to save enough money to put the kids through college or retire comfortably?   The truth is, it’s always a struggle when you lose someone you love. But your emotional struggles don’t need to be compounded by financial difficulties. Life insurance helps make sure that the people you care about will be provided for financially, even if you’re not there to care for them yourself.
