General Life Insurance Information

Coverage for Your Life

  • The Cost of Waiting: Why the best time to buy life insurance is when you may be least likely to think about it — when you're young.
  • The Importance of Life Insurance for a Stay-at-Home Spouse: The death of a stay-at-home spouse can have a significant financial impact beyond the emotional one, and insuring only the working parent may not be enough.
  • Time is on Your Side: Because age affects the cost of life insurance as well as how much cash value you can build in your policy, youth can be your greatest asset when planning for your financial future.
