You probably have several people you care about – your spouse, your children and your parents. In addition to emotional support, they may count on you financially. While no life can be replaced, life insurance can provide a financial cushion so you can support those you love, even after you’re gone.
So why do you need life insurance?
Because you have people who count on you to pay the mortgage and other monthly bills.
Because you want your children to have a debt-free college experience.
Because you don’t want to make others responsible for your financial obligations.
Because you want income tax advantaged death benefits to help protect you and your family.
Because life is precious.
