Life insurance – Insuring Love

Raising a Family

Having life insurance is a gift of love to your partner, spouse, parent or children. It shows, at the time when most needed, that you’re allowing them to breathe a bit easier and live a bit easier.

Loving someone is more than just words, it involves action, thoughtfulness. Day-to-day actions at home could be picking up without being asked, making dinner or doing the after-dinner cleanup. Giving hugs and kisses just because – not for any reason other than that. Small things that add up.

Show your family that you love them by having life insurance available for the most important time when it will be needed. It could be insurance on yourself, your spouse, partner, your children. Buying one insurance policy might cover all, if riders are available on the policy.

Unless you have substantial savings put aside, who will pay for costs associated with your funeral? The average cost of a funeral alone is $8,000-$10,000 according to Will your family be to cover the costs if you’re critically ill and in need of nursing home, in-home health-care, or day-to-day living expenses such as the mortgage, utilities, even food? Nursing home costs vary by state, and according to, the average annual cost nationwide is about $75,000.

Life insurance is a way to show your love and assure your loved ones of some financial security when it’s needed.
