Financial planning advice and answers
WHAT IS LIFE INSURANCE?
Life insurance is a product and a tool that millions of people choose to purchase each year to help offset risks associated with everyday life. Life insurance is also a tool to help put a person at ease, knowing their loved ones won’t have to struggle financially in the event of his/her untimely death.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT LIFE INSURANCE?
There are innumerable reasons why people choose to buy life insurance coverage however, one of the most valuable reasons is the peace of mind it provides to clients, ensuring that their loved ones are financially secure in the event of the policy holders’ death.
Life insurance also provides a great place to begin a thorough and comprehensive estate plan to ensure that all of one's affairs are in order, and all their needs and worries have been abated.
WHAT TYPES OF LIFE INSURANCE ARE AVAILABLE?
Term: This product offers economical pricing covering a certain period known as a term; this term can be 10, 20 or even 30 years depending on your needs. Unlike institutions that offer term life coverage, such as banks, the coverage we offer provides approval at the time of application and not at the time of death, ensuring, in the event of death, that your family won’t have to worry about being declined for the benefit. This type of product is most suitable for those who require temporary coverage, needed to cover certain debts should a death occur; these debts can include things such as your mortgage, car loans, and any other temporary commitments a client may have. Term insurance can also provide a fund to help dependents continue to maintain the same standard of living should the primary breadwinner die during the term.
Whole Life: This product is a form of permanent insurance, offering coverage over the course of one’s life to aid in more permanent needs such as funeral costs, taxes, and any other needs such as these. The premium for this product stays level over the entire duration of the contract and builds a cash surrender value over time as well. Should a person choose to surrender his/her policy, he/she would be entitled to this cash value.
Term-100: This is a product which also provides coverage for the entire life of the life insured however, it matures at age 100, meaning premiums are no longer required to be paid, with the benefit paying out upon attaining age 100 generally. These policies typically hold no cash value. The benefit of this is that premiums are generally lower than a comparable whole life policy. This product is valuable to those who have no desire to surrender the policy at a later date, as well as a person who requires a fixed amount of coverage to take care of certain costs that are unlikely to change.
WHAT IS CRITICAL ILLNESS?
Critical Illness is a product that covers an individual in the event of a critical health problem, such as life-threatening cancer, stroke, or a heart attack. After these events, a person may return to work in some capacity, however, these health disasters can seriously alter a person, and his/her family’s way of life, incurring huge medical bills that seem endless. What critical illness protects against is the financial impact these health events can incur.
HOW DOES CRITICAL ILLNESS WORK?
Critical Illness is triggered when a health event occurs on the life insured, paying out a lump sum benefit, concluding the contract. Each contract is different but the covered conditions will be stated and described in the insurance contract; usually included are life-threatening forms of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, but there are many other health events that can be covered to ensure that the client has exactly what he/she needs to have peace of mind that they are covered in the event of a serious condition arising.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE CRITICAL ILLNESS COVERAGE?
The answer is simple; peace of mind! We all want to think we will be healthy our whole lives, but the fact of the matter is that sometimes we can get seriously ill; what Critical Illness coverage does is providing our clients the peace of mind that should anything happen, they will have funds to help support them and their family through a tough time.
