You hear it in the news every day – the U.S. economy has yet to fully rebound from the “Great Recession” of 2008-2009. Although every family’s situation is different, many people are still dealing with the leaner and meaner economic realities of post-recession years.
The employment market remains tight and families feel the pressure of keeping up with the expenses of day-to-day-living. Yet family budgets need to address not only today’s demands, but also financial goals for the future.
Life insurance may sometimes seem complicated and confusing, given the many different providers, policies and coverages. It’s important to thoroughly research your options before making a choice, but – if you do your research online – it’s also important to consider the source of the information.
To help you separate fact from fiction, let’s dissect some common misconceptions:
Adults buy life insurance to protect loved ones who depend on them for support. But what about young children and babies? No one depends on their support, so do they need life insurance?
Getting life insurance for your children while they are still infants can be a smart idea and a forward-thinking decision. With the Gerber Life Grow-Up® Plan1, the coverage you buy now can help ensure that your youngster has the opportunity to stay protected years into the future. You can start Grow-Up® coverage for children as young as 14 days old, and you can lock in a low childhood premium rate that your child could keep for life.
When you become a parent, you want nothing more than to protect your children from harm. Unfortunately, you can’t anticipate every obstacle your children will encounter, including the possibility of your death. By having an appropriate life insurance policy, you can help ensure that your children have a financial safety net should something happen to you.
