Life Insurance Is Key to Financial Security

By NAIFA on 4/26/22 12:23 PM

New research by LIMRA and Life Happens shows two significant trends: life insurance is key to financial security and gender gaps extend to life insurance coverage.

Financial Security with Life Insurance

Financial insecurity affects all age groups, but one thing is clear: having life insurance increases Americans' feeling of financial security. 68% of life insurance owners feel financially secure compared with 47% of non-owners, and those who feel most secure have coverage both through their employer and a separate individual policy. The study also showed that the COVID-19 pandemic had increased awareness of the need for life insurance, with 31% of those surveyed saying they are more likely to buy life insurance in 2022.

By Mark Briscoe on 2/22/21 9:58 AM

If you have children or are planning to start a family in the future, you must be aware of higher education costs. If you have not yet adopted a saving plan, you might get yourself caught up in limbo. But do you know life insurance can be used as a funding source for your children's college fees? Yes, other than funds from your spouse's premature death, life insurance has a saving component known as cash value.

Life Insurance and Education Goals Go Hand in Hand

By NAIFA on 2/22/21 9:52 AM

The thought of financing college for your child can be overwhelming. The cost for a state university is prohibitive for the average family. Private universities' annual costs can rival your salary. Most families with young children probably haven't even begun to consider these costs -- they are too busy putting food on the table and paying for their home. But the early years are a great time to begin planning for future educational expenses.

Life Events Impact Your Insurance and Financal Services Needs

By NAIFA on 2/10/21 1:00 PM

Ah, life. It continues whether we are prepared or not. But preparation is key to navigating life events that affect our finances. 

Marriage

Two become one, and that means shared responsibilities and incomes. Let's face it -- life insurance may not be top-of-mind for couples embarking on a lifetime together, but perhaps it should be. If one of you was unable to work, could you afford your mortgage or your day-to-day bills? 

If you start your financial planning early in your marriage, you'll have a better chance for financial success, and you'll increase your future options.
