Reaffirming the Importance of Life Insurance

Life InsuranceI wrote an article on life insurance when I first launched this blog, and I addressed how inexpensive and important it is. What I failed to address is the reasons why people don’t get life insurance.  The main one being that we tend to think that it always happens to someone else, that we are invincible.  I have preached about the importance of life insurance for anyone who has kids, and my earlier article even stated to seriously, order it TODAY.  Last month, my 21 year old sister in law passed away, she had two children ages 2 and 8 months.  Now there is no amount of money in the world that would ever make up for those boys growing up without their mother, but had she had a policy, it would make the next 18 years much easier on her entire family.

I can SAY to do something all day long, but unless action is taken, it doesn’t matter.  Having all the financial knowledge in the world doesn’t help if I can’t get action to occur in others to make our family stronger, our friends stronger, and even strangers who may be reading this stronger.  She could have bought a $500,000 20 year policy for about $15 a month.  If you are reading this, buy term life insurance TODAY, RIGHT NOW to protect your children and those who will care for them.  Our existence in this world is temporary and fragile, and none of us will get out of this alive. We all have our time, and we don’t get to know when it is. Get signed up today at Zander Insurance, they compare several insurance companies at once to get you the best deal.

Remember too that not only primary earners need life insurance. Stay at home parents also need life insurance. How much would it cost to replace all the work a stay at home mom does?  Think about that before deciding against life insurance. It’s inexpensive, It’s easy to get and it’s imperative protection to provide for your family.
