Did You Know We Sell Life Insurance

 Life insurance is a simple concept — you buy a policy that pays your beneficiary or beneficiaries when you die — but the decisions of what kind of life insurance, how much of a death benefit and how much you pay are extremely complex.  There are more than 2,000 companies selling life insurance in this country.  In general, it’s wise to stick with companies that are rated A or better by most rating organizations.

Life insurance is far more than just a decision of how much to buy.   Depending on your financial situation, life insurance can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:  satisfying a debt obligation such as a mortgage or car loan, guaranteeing adequate funds for a college education for your children, estate planning, accumulating cash, transferring wealth or achieving estate tax liquidity.  Life insurance is like auto insurance in that you can buy a lot of it or not very much at all.  Life insurance differs from auto insurance in that, depending on the type of policy you buy, you can pay a lot or little for basically the same death benefit.

How much life insurance do you need?  It depends.  One common benchmark is your death benefit. It should be about six to eight times your annual earnings, but there are a variety of factors to consider:  other income sources, size of your family, whether your spouse works, the number of people in the family.

In the next issue we will be talking more about the type of life insurance.  These and other questions can be answered by calling our office and asking for Denise.

DUI Awareness: Did You Know…

In PA, 27% of driver deaths in the 16-20 age group were drinking drivers, 44% of driver deaths in the 21-25 age group were drinking drivers. On average, 26 people are injured in alcohol-related traffic crashes each day. As of October 2003, the BAC (blood-alcohol content) was lowered to .08%. Drinking and driving not only results in accidents and injuries, but getting caught while drinking and driving could result in fines, loss of a drivers license, and even jail time, not to mention sky-high insurance rates. Most carriers refuse to write auto insurance for individuals with a DUI on their driving record. If your current carrier finds out you have had a DUI, they could refuse to renew your policy. DUI’s will stay on your record for 3 years. Talk to your teens about drinking, and make sure they understand the consequences. If you have any questions about this information, call us at 844-655-7480.
