Why you may need life insurance coverage
The idea of life insurance can feel daunting, but the meaning is simple: life insurance helps protect your family from financial hardship if you were to pass away unexpectedly. Life insurance can help your family provide for lost income, cover bills and debts left behind funeral expenses, and potentially help pay for living expenses for your family for a period of time. If you have a spouse or dependents, life insurance is a great way to help protect the people you love. Take the next step today on National Insurance Awareness Day.
Ways to evaluate your coverage needs:
- If you have a spouse
- Whether you have kids
- You have debt
- If you do not have enough money to cover your debts as well as the expenses related to death—your funeral, estate, attorney fees, and other expenses.
If you answered yes to any of the above scenarios, life insurance is likely a great option for you and making sure you’re signed up for the correct amount of coverage is very important.

An IUL insurance policy provides a death benefit and a separate cash value that could increase over time. The performance will mimic an equity index. Although an external index or indexes may affect policy values, the policy does not directly participate in any stock or equity investments. Indexed Universal Life increases in value when the market performs and does not lose value when it underperforms. For this reason, an IUL policy may benefit the insured. Based on the possibility of a higher cash value accumulation than a universal life (UL) insurance policy.
