July 18th is national Insurance Nerd Day, and over here at Encore we definitely geek out about all types of insurance, but today we'll focus on Life Insurance.
Perhaps you’ve heard the maxim, “Preparation is the key to success.” But when it comes to life insurance, knowing when to prepare is almost more important than the preparation, itself.
Sure, it can be difficult to think about life insurance as early as your 20s, but life moves pretty fast sometimes. Before you know it, you’ll be in your 30s and possibly supporting a family. Even if you have a different life plan, taking care of those who matter most is always a wise move.
Many consumers believe they simply can’t afford life insurance on top of all the other bills they pay at an early age. That’s a valid concern! After all,
you should never engage in any sort of financial venture beyond your means.
Several factors will affect the cost and availability of life insurance, including age, health, and the type and amount of insurance purchased. Life insurance policies have expenses, including mortality and other charges. If a policy is surrendered prematurely, the policyholder also may pay surrender charges and have income tax implications. You should consider determining whether you are insurable before implementing a strategy involving life insurance. Any guarantees associated with a policy are dependent on the ability of the issuing insurance company to continue making claim payments.
Insurance can be an intimidating topic, but it doesn’t have to be. I’d love to chat with you about your choices. Call today, and we’ll set up a time to talk. Even if right now isn’t the best time to purchase
life insurance, discussing the future is a smart move.
