Single income or double income household? Which ever your case is, have you thought about what would happen if this income was no longer available? Most likely it would be devastating. Very few of us take time to think about what will happen if the an income earner dies. It is not one of the most pleasant tasks in life but it is a necessary one.

If others depend on your income, proper planning is a MUST and will remove the financial devastation for your loved ones. With others depending on you it would be wise to take some time and learn about protecting the loss of income through life insurance. It may surprise you, that with relatively a small annual premium you can give an effective means of financial support for your loved ones.

 Providing for your loved ones… may be one of the most important investments you will ever make.

Life insurance is one of those very important purchases you make during your lifetime. If a tragedy happens, life insurance proceeds can help replace lost income. With the right insurance coverage your loved ones will not worry about their immediate and future finances. Life insurance serves as the foundation for a family’s financial security and is one of the few things that will give assurance during a difficult time.

One Income Family: When the family’s main breadwinner dies, the survivors still have living expenses and possibly other debt. With a one income family it is essential that the main breadwinner have enough life insurance to cover the missing income.

Two Income Family: If one of the income earners in a two income family dies, the amount of life insurance needed should equal the amount of the lost income in order to support the same standard of living. Life insurance is an invaluable way to protect the future income needs of your family.

Speak with an agent to learn about the options available to you. Agents are trained to evaluate your needs, offer unbiased advice and support during difficult times. Independent agents will be able to access insurance coverage from multiple carriers, which in-turn provides you with the best options for prices and savings.

How to Pay off Mortgage with Life Insurance

mortgage protectionOne of the major investments in life, is your home. If others depend on your income to make the mortgage payment, seems to make sense to have some mortgage protection in place if you unexpectedly die.

Proper financial planning for mortgage protection could be the difference between financial devastation or not. Term life insurance may be the perfect solution to this dilemma if you still owe on your home mortgage. It is designed as low cost coverage for a specified period of time.

Here’s how it works: say you have 5 to 30 years on your home mortgage. If you purchase a term life insurance policy for same period of time and for the amount still owed on your mortgage… Then if you should die unexpectedly during the “term” the policy is in force, your love ones receive the face value of the policy purchased. The proceeds from the insurance policy will pay off the home mortgage. Making this one less thing for your loved ones to worry about during a difficult time.

Not only can the proceeds pay the mortgage, but the money can be used for any purpose your loved ones choose. For example, they may want to pay off a high interest credit card debt or a new car loan or use it for their cost of living expenses while they are going through a difficult time. Life insurance benefits are usually tax free and the beneficiary chooses how the money will be used.

Questions to ask yourself: if I died today…
Would my loved ones be able to stay in their current home?
How will the mortgage and other living expenses be paid?
Is my spouse’s income sufficient to maintain the daily expenses?

Note: This discussion covers the type of insurance that will pay off your mortgage balance in the event of your death. This should not to be confused with mortgage protection insurance which covers your mortgage payments in the event your are unemployed, sick or, injured.

Sticker Shock…

The purpose of Life Insurance is to PROVIDE. It is not intended to PROVIDE with superabundance.

Most people think Life Insurance is “Too Expensive”. Probably in part because many do not understand the actual cost of insuring a life. (view: life insurance needs worksheet)

Would your household have trouble meeting expenses if the primary or secondary income earner died today?

Many reports are stating the U.S. Is at a 50 year low for life insurance ownership. In turn this means (more…)
