There’s a policy to fit every situation

Wondering what things to consider as you choose a life insurance policy? Here are a few hypothetical situations to help you think about what kind of policy would be best for your situation.

Just getting started
Josh and Sara are a young couple expecting their first child. Money is a little tight for now, but they expect to be more financially comfortable in a few years as they pay off their student loans and advance in their careers. They know it’s important to have protection just in case right now, and they’d like to have the protection there and paid for later in life. One good option would be Transitional Life Insurance. Should something happen while their child is young, the surviving parent and child would have the support they need. And they’ll have a guaranteed, paid-up policy in place for their later years.

Looking out for the grandchildren
John and Marie have been fortunate. John made a very good living, and Marie was able to stay home with their three children. Now, after retiring, they’re wondering how they can leave a legacy for their children and grandchildren. They’d like to pass on a death benefit to each of their children and grandchildren, but they’d like it to be tax-free. The Single Premium Whole Life Insurance policy would be a good option for John and Marie.

Young business owners
Jamal and Traci started their own business and it’s going very well. Universal Whole Life is a good fit for them, because it protects them both, as well as their business in case of anything happening to one of them. Any of the whole life options would also be good possibilities.

Tight budget
Cindy is a single mother with two children. She understands the importance of having life insurance to provide for her children’s needs, but doesn’t have enough income to purchase as much as she’d like. Fortunately, she can afford to purchase a high level of protection using term life insurance. This kind of policy doesn’t build value, but it does provide a larger payout for a smaller monthly cost than other forms of life insurance.

Protection and savings
Pete and Karen always knew they should get life insurance, but they kept putting it off. Now, in middle age, they’re concerned that they may have left it too long, and they’re afraid they might not be approved. Preferred Whole Life Insurance or Simplified Issue Whole Life Insurance would be good options for them.
