We often plan vacations or family outings with great care, but do most people take the same care to plan for the loss of a spouse? It’s a difficult topic for anyone to consider. Too often, we realize our own vulnerabilities only after seeing friends and neighbors suffer tragic loss in their own families.
If something were to happen to you or your spouse, think about the financial impact. Chances are, whether the loss is sudden or the result of a long illness, your family’s ability to meet the goals you had for them would be affected.
You can help protect your family against life’s uncertainties by being properly insured. Life insurance was created to provide for those who would be financially hurt by the death of the insured.
The use of life insurance has been expanded to include more sophisticated financial strategies. But its original intent as a way to provide needed resources in a family’s time of need remains intact.
