Life insurance, should it become a part of your life?
Life insurance can offer security to anyone’s life, especially when a family is involved. Life insurance comes with a policy, premiums and other indepth information attached, but the question stands, do you need life insurance?
Life can be unpredictable as life can throw you a curve ball when you least expect it. Life insurance offers much security to continue a family in function should a loved one pass away unexpectedly.
Death can be one of the most expensive moments in a persons life. With funeral expenses and even unpaid bills or unsatisfied loans, a family can be drained of every financial resource during the death of a loved one.
Perhaps it may be harder to imagine your loved ones living on a street struggling to survive. Your child picking up cans just to bring in a couple cents because they want to see their parent again yet that parent would be pulling triple time just to feed that child. A tough vision yet one that could be a reality. But thanks to life insurance, the family can learn to breath while mourning in picking up the broken pieces of their heart.
Life insurance can help a family in their time in need. Some people confuse health insurance with life insurance. Health insurance is just as important as life insurance since anything can happen such as with my father. The health insurance helped with my fathers medical care but only to a degree as most health insurance policies usually works this way. Health insurance pays in health care while life insurance pays for the “ever after.”
A beneficiary is the person the money goes to which name is given by the payer of the policy. Laws are different in many states yet the policy should go as such, the one that the policy is made out to should be the only one signing and paying. That person should be the only one to give the name of the beneficiary restricting anyone outside involvement.
Life insurance policies differ with stipulations, guidelines and restrictions so read and search for the right one to sign. For instance, make sure that you sign a paper that covers deaths due to natural death, car crashes, fire, drowning, any weather related deaths, medical related deaths, victim of an accident or victim of criminal activity instead of finding that the policy only pays out if you naturally die. You want to cover your corners for the better interest of your family upon mourning your loss.
Life insurance is not for free so you are expected to pay a weekly, monthly of bulk amount. There are many different offers out there so, again, do your research first. Most life insurance agents will either call you or visit for a free estimate cost as they run you through the restrictions, premiums, payout procedures, and so on. It sounds scary to some but it is easier than it sounds. You are simply preparing for your family’s needs should you pass away, whether your death was expected or not. Life insurance can actually keep the stress levels down as it helps with the expenses surrounding a death.
If you have never seen a person or family struggle financially due to their loved one passing without a life insurance policy, count your lucky stars if you have prepared by having a life insurance policy. The health of a person can diminish during such moments and slowly become unhealthy in time, somewhat like a domino effect. And these are the reasons that life insurance is important, to help others keep it together financially when their loved one dies so that they can continue to manage life after the passing.
The ending questions would be how much do you love yourself and how much do you love your family? Do you love them enough to make sure that they have been provided what they need when you pass away? If you answered that it doesn’t matter because when you die, you just die then perhaps you don’t love yourself or others enough. I have heard others say this and it sounds colder than the morgue itself but some believe this way of thinking. No matter what others do believe in, I have experienced both the advantages of having life insurance and witnessed the disadvantages of not having a life insurance policy.
Another family lost their father and he had no health insurance policy. He was the bread maker of the family and his death was unexpected since he was quite healthy. The mother never worked before and was losing her grip with life as she tried to take care of her family. Last I heard, she sold everything that she could just to pay for rent alone. The father would not have wanted this but they just never signed upon that dotted line. If they had, that family would have lived a healthier life.
It has been ten years since I have seen this family for they no longer contact anyone that they once knew. Life insurance, is it important? Yes, for the alternative is a far worse path. And when your loved one goes to heaven, it is better to live heaven upon earth than add to the hell within the loss itself. With this noted, health insurance is needed by all measures, especially when you have a family or loved one to think about.
Life insurance, would it be a good idea to have a life insurance policy? Check the premiums and stipulations, if they are approved to your suggestion in alteration or appear good as is, seek further in signing that contract called the life insurance policy.
It’s a personal choice, life insurance. You have to weigh your options in the many life insurance companies as many offer different rules and regulations on collecting from the life insurance policy.
Just imagine what life would be like for others if you do not have a life insurance policy and something dire should occur. It’s either the policy or less options, which is it? Now would be a good time to ask, do you think life insurance is needed?
