Life is Good When You Plan for Your Loved Ones
As a child, actress Leslie Bibb (Iron Man 2, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) learned just how fragile life can be when her father died in a work-related accident at age 39.
Bibb also learned an important lesson in love. Her father’s legacy included a life insurance policy, which helped provide for the needs of Bibb, her three sisters and their mother.
“My father never thought he’d die at such a young age, but he loved his family enough to expect the unexpected,” says Bibb. “His life insurance was his legacy of love to our family, allowing us to carry on with our lives and to continue living.”
Bibb is now such a believer in the importance of life insurance she’s serving as national spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM), a program of the nonprofit LIFE Foundation.
Why You, Too, Should Consider Life Insurance
Here are 10 good reasons to get life insurance now.
1. For a lower premium
Your life insurance premium is based, in part, on your age. So the sooner you act, the sooner you can take advantage of a lower rate.
2. To protect your future insurability
Somewhere down the road, failing health could prevent you from qualifying for life insurance. The time to buy life insurance is when you are in good health.
3. In case of a job change
Life insurance through your employer may be insufficient for your needs, and it could be gone if you were to leave or lose your job. A new position doesn’t always come with life insurance benefits.
4. Because people count on you
You may not know what the future will bring, but you can choose to ask about financial protection. In the event of unforeseen circumstances, help make sure your loved ones are financially protected.
5. In response to a recent life event
Marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, divorce, a new home or retirement can all trigger the need for life insurance to protect your loved ones’ financial future.
6. You are vacationing soon
Before you take your next vacation, it’s a good idea to have your affairs in order, including life insurance.
7. Your business may require it
Some commercial bank loans or lines of credit require life insurance protection. Buy-sell agreements pertaining to business partnerships may require certain partners to be covered under a key person policy.
