Lets say you are incapacitated by an accident or illness, this document allows the person you’ve chosen to act for you—and quickly. That can help you avoid a lot of problems, including hard-to-get guardianship and conservatorship rights.
What happens after your kids have made that $10 in coins and bills? How do they budget? How much should be spent, what should be saved and given to charity?
As challenging as all of this has been, we are very fortunate that we’ve both had life insurance for many years. While we are optimistic about the long-term outcome, we’re also thankful for the peace of mind this protection gives us.
Every day we talk with people who are seeking coverage after receiving a cancer diagnosis. Unfortunately, most are considered “uninsurable,” at least for a few years.
Join Life Happens and NAIFA representatives on Thursday, September 26th from 1:00-2:00pm EDT as we moderate a Twitter Chat focused on findings from the 2019 Insurance Barometer Study. There will be plenty of activity from the media, insurance companies, agents and consumers. We hope this chat helps promote life insurance awareness among the public and allows agents and companies to discuss important industry issues, best practices and solutions for ways to improve.
Both working and stay-at-home moms need protection because what they do for their families is so valuable. While a stay-at-home mom isn’t compensated for her work, if something were to happen to her, it would be expensive to replace all those things she does—from childcare to home care to ensuring the family gets where they need to go when they have to be there.
The difference between the two is that a working mother also contributes an income, which may be critical to the family financially. That means she needs to think about replacing that income when considering how much life insurance coverage she may need.
