statistic on families who needs more life insuranceHaving a life insurance policy is a “must” for many families. Parents often have a plan for when a child gets sick and for when severe weather heads their way, but what if something happens to them – or to you? What would happen to your family? Who would pay the rent or the mortgage, or for your children’s education? Would your family have enough money to pay for your final expenses without being a burden?

Life insurance helps to cover such costs in case something unexpected happens to you. It helps you to protect loved ones who financially depend on you. September is Life Insurance Awareness month. Do you have enough coverage in place to adequately protect your family?

According to LIMRA, fifty percent of U.S. households say they need more life insurance.
