Why is life insurance important?

For young people with no health issues and no families to support, life insurance can be seen as an unnecessary expense. However, if you are married and have children, purchasing life insurance could put your family into a comfortable financial state in the event of your death.

  • Debt payoff: Your bills don’t follow you when you die; they land in the lap of your survivors. A good life insurance policy will ensure they aren’t saddled with your debt.
  • College tuition for your children: Without you around, your spouse will likely have a difficult time making ends meet – forget about saving for your kids’ college fund. A life insurance policy can ensure that in the event of your death, your children will have their expenses covered.
  • Funeral costs: The last thing your family should have to worry about is how to pay for your funeral.

There are many more reasons that life insurance is important. To discuss those in further detail, find a life insurance agent who can answer your questions.
