September is Life Insurance Awareness Month

Love + Legacy = Life Insurance.

September is a busy time of year for all of us. The kids are back in school, the office gets back to normal following summer vacations, and the usual household chores and errands needs to get done. It’s also Life Insurance Awareness Month and we’re working with the LIFE Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping consumers make smart insurance decisions, to help people like you discover the benefits of protecting their loved ones with life insurance. Life insurance is one of the best ways to say “I love you” to your loved ones by ensuring their future is safe and secure. We urge you to take less than 10 minutes to watch the videos* below. As you'll see, life insurance may provide the guarantees and benefits that make the difference between dreams coming true - or just remaining dreams.

The Montes de Oca family and Buddy "Cake Boss" Valastro each have very different stories. However, they do share one common factor: An appreciation for the benefits of life insurance.

After losing her beloved husband Felipe to leukemia, Lissete Montes de Oca was able to maintain her family's lifestyle and educate her two boys, with a little help from the life insurance policy their friend and agent, Pedro Busse, sold the couple. In fact, their touching story has been chosen by the LIFE Foundation as one of its 2012 realLIFEstories and is featured in a special section of September's O, The Oprah Magazine. You can read more about the Montes de Oca's story and connect with their agent, Pedro Busse on Facebook.

Buddy Valastro discusses the heartbreak of losing his father and mentor when he was just 17 years old. Because his father was the primary breadwinner, Buddy had to drop out of high school to run the family business - often working 12-18 hours a day. Buddy’s situation was made more challenging by the fact that his father didn’t have life insurance. He comments, “If there had been life insurance, I know things would have been a lot easier. I could have hired more people, worried less and had time to grieve." Read more about Buddy's story and connect with him on Facebook and Twitter.
