Leave a Legacy of Lower Debt


Jason’s neighbor, a widow, sold her home six months after her husband died. The woman told Jason she was moving from the neighborhood because she couldn’t afford the mortgage, credit cards, and car loan without her husband. Jason was unsettled thinking debt could force his family into the same predicament. Seven out of ten U.S. families with children under age 18 would have trouble paying their bills immediately or within a month or two if the primary wage earner died unexpectedly. If you died, what would your family have to give up to make ends meet?

Life insurance can provide peace of mind for you, and the loved ones you leave behind. The income tax-free death benefit can help pay for housing and debt.

Life insurance can also help pay for:

  • Final expenses — Funeral costs, doctor and hospital bills, attorney fees, and other probate costs.
  • Necessary living expenses — Food, clothing, education, day care, utilities, transportation, and insurance.
  • Emergencies — Home and auto repairs, uncovered medical and dental expenses, temporary layoff, or helping a parent or adult child in need.
  • Miscellaneous living expenses — Vacations and recreational dues and fees.

A financial representative can review flexible and affordable life insurance options. A variety of plans are available to fit your unique situation. The more you learn about your options, the better prepared you can be to select the type of life insurance that’s best for you and your family.
